Nico van der Meulen Architects have designed the immaculate House Duk in Johannesburg, South Africa. Positioned within a secured nature reserve that affords you the privilege of appreciating the comfort of outdoor living, this particular home was inspired by its own setting. Natural materials were carefully selected and strategically placed throughout the home serving as reminders of the serene location. Splashes of color were used to liven the interior spaces with emphasis given to textures and furnishings. The concept incorporates the idea of floating planes hovering above you, as if suspended in midair. Upon closer inspection these planes appear to be the main roof structure. Drawn in by the transparency and openness of the home, you are once again introduced to what seems to be a floating block hovering in midair which in fact is the main bedroom.
