Kloof Road House is the latest project by Nico van der Meulen Architects located at the foot of a nature reserve in Bedfordview, Johannesburg. The client’s brief called for a family orientated home suitable for indoor/outdoor entertainment that maximizes the views to the north. The result is a 1100m² sculptural piece of architecture that is an extreme transformation from the previously modest single story. With every room in the house opening outdoors, linking the home with the landscaped garden, indoor/outdoor living is guaranteed. Roda furniture, with its mimetic design, become an integral part of the context. The cross-references, between indoors and outdoors, meet perfectly the Roda vision of outdoors: its furniture is not merely positioned outside, but belongs to outside. So Dandy sofa, 100% outdoor, and Berenice lounge chair create an extension of living room, to enjoy the terrace as one more room.
The prominet materials used in the construction of Kloof Road house are Steel, glass and concrete from the boundary wall all the way to the interior. The wall of the entrance is clad with natural timber in a herringbone pattern to soften the harshness of the steel, glass and concrete interior, while the backlit ceilings create a shadowless interior inside the sculptured 3D forms.
In this set of pictures of we an open plan layout luxurious the double volume kitchen, living room and dining room which coherently merge into one another with a polished concrete floor extending to the lanai. The angled columns supporting steel beams and the roof pierce the double volume space.
