- House Calaca
A new house in Kempton park, South Africa.
The villa is approximately 1250sq.m and situated on a 3000sq.m site in a new gated suburb.
The building is divided in three disitnct sections:
The living area with hall, garages and owner's suite, a living area for two daughters who are still studying with two suites and a large living room with it's own balconies, and a guest suite with a gymnasium, garages and the son's apartment on top of this, with it's own entrance.
The entrance is screened with a metal mesh, (to prevent small kids from accesing the koi pond) behind which a glass bridge leads to the hall.
The hall has a glass floor over the koipond, with glass walls, a glass bridge over it leading between the different upstairs sections, and a glass roof.
The pool is connected to the house by a beam, which eliminated the need for corner support to the family room, lanai and hall.
