    Nico van der Meulen Architects : Ber House

    By AwesomeArchitecture

    The client requested a contemporary, iconic house without unnecessary rooms, open plan and airy. They needed 4 suites, a living area and a large study as he does a lot of work from home. The wife originally wanted burglar bars, which is not allowed in the estate, but this was the inspiration for the random steel bars used around the house, which could possibly keep flying elephants out.

    The house was designed by Werner van der Meulen of Nico van der Meulen Architects as a simple rectangular shape, with the living rooms in the centre, surrounded by a koi pond and a pool. From the porte cochere one walks over the koi pond to the front door, looking through the hall, dining room and family room at the pool on the north side.  The koi pond filled with mature koi surrounds the dining room on two sides. Broken slabs of granite with steel sheets over acts as steps between the dining room and hall to the family room and kitchen. A cantilevered staircase jut out of a granite clad wall, with an illuminated handrail cut into the wall.
