Collection of modern, minimalist, and eco friendly architectural design for your home inspiration
Nico Van Der Meulen Architects have recently completed a contemporary house design in Johannesburg, South Africa. Rough site location didn’t hassle the architects that much since the residence is built on a sloped terrain.
Resolving the slope issue has been made by constructing a large basement, with the living spaces visually appealing and modernly cantilevered over the base. The brutalist look of the house is created by its rectangular volumes the concrete, the rust-like copper cladding of the lift shaft, and gray travertine cladding.
The masculine frame element is found throughout the house, as a monumental beam protruding from the upper slab or giving rhythm to the glazed facade, trimming the fabulous illuminated glass staircase, in the coffered ceiling, or acting as a surprising decorative detail in wood veneer.
The living room is a real 2 story lounge area characterized by a single massive wall with a 4 m long fireplace, fashionable upholstered furniture and suspended round metal light installations. The interior spaces feature travertine and rich dark brown wood finishes.
With tons of blueprints (over 16,000!) for different furniture designs and outdoor woodwork projectsyou can have a great insight into how to build different things with wood. In it, they tell you about wood, how to design projects, the detailed photographs, patterns, blueprints, materials list and step by step instructions on how to put build them.
The second part shows you the different tools and how to use them, and a complete guide to woodwork carpentry. And the color photographs and drawings are beautiful and show a lot of detail.
