A Contemporary Residence In South Africa By Nico Van Der Meulen Architects

Words

Nico Van Der Meulen Architects designed a contemporary residence located in Johannesburg, South Africa. The ‘Kloof Road House‘ consists of a steel structure with concrete boxes and floor-to-ceiling glass windows. The studio’s aim for the three-story family home was to combine indoor and outdoor living. In a statement about their work, Van der Meulen says: “In architecture, functionality should always be given higher priority than the form, considering we spend our entire lives inhabiting the structures we’ve designed rather than admiring their external appearances.”
