A dream house with wow effect, by Metropole Architects

This wonderful residence is  located in Zimbali, South Africa and it is designed by Metropole Architects. This is a family house, with a golf course view, situated on a private property, located deep in the Zimbali Forest. The owners’ desire was to live in a dream house and it can be said that the architects from The Metropole Architects and the builders from Sygnatur as well, made their wish come true.

The Japonese architecure influence is very noticeable, including the presence of several Koi ponds which harmoniously sorround the house. The water from these ponds flows through the house and supplies the swimming pool, further creating more waterfalls throughout the courtyard. The wood and the stone combined together, subtly integrate the house in the natural environment, and compliments the architectural style specific to Zimbali Forest Estate.

A dream house
The design of the house is defined by this combination of wood, stone, slate and raw nature surrounding the house, resulting in a rustic and sofisticated atmosphere.The classical kitchen of the house expands to the dinning area  and lounge. The stacked roof is fragmented and linked with fat roof slabs in corespondence with the position of rooms, stairs and the way the house is articulated. The interior of the house is well lit, and it is decorated with art, tribal drawings and safari like carpets. The whole design and architecture defines a dream house, culminating with an inevitable wow effect. Enjoy!

Lockeport Beach House by Nova Tayona Architects

Despite its dramatic location on an expanse of shoreline, the clients also were drawn to the internal, cozy character of the site, and so, Lockeport Beach House is an oxymoron. Scraggly tamarack and spruce trees covered in Old Man’s Beard are very particular to some areas of Nova Scotia and thrive in the 10 cm of shallow soil here.
