Five Story Dream Home
Five Storey Dream Home design ideas. House Lam design with beautiful indoor and outdoor sensation. this home remodel of a 1950?s house in Bedfordview, a suburb of Johannesburg, South Africa by Nico van der Meulen Architects.Werner van der Meulen designed the infinity edge pool to extend over the steep fall, placing it on a single 3m diameter column, cantilevering nearly six metres. He created a massive rock clad wall which bisects the building on a north-south axis, then transforms into a huge red-painted beam which helps to support the lanai roof.
Five Storey Dream Home with frameless stacking doors fold away to create a seamless indoor/outdoor sensation, with the pool jutting into the living area with the doors open. The original foot print area was extended to create extra garages and a new first floor added , which houses three suites, a pyjama lounge and a kid’s study. Staff accommodation was placed on top of the new garage.
The original two kids bedrooms became a study, and the original main suite a guest suite. The ground floor living space was gutted, and a large open plan, partially double volume living space housing the family room, dining room, kitchen and ancillary spaces created. A new 6x13meter lanai next to the pool was added on the only piece of usable land on the north side , growing out of the mountain, with spectacular views to the north and west. The original cellar was retained as a wine cellar and a home theatre with views into the pool. Now Look the Five Storey Dream Home : Beautiful Indoor and Outdoor Sensation with picture below:
