This is a redesign and renovation of 1950's house on a hill overlooking Johannesburg CBD, by Werner van der Meulen of Nico van der Meulen Architects.
Interior design was by M Square Lifestyle Design, led by Phia van der Meulen.
Most of the furniture was supplied by M Square Lifestyle Necessities.
Very little was added to the footprint of the existing house (except for the new garages), but almost all of the internal walls were removed to create the open plan layout and maximize the views.
The 270 degree view can be enjoyed from just about every room in the house.
Frameless sliding/folding doors were used around the living area, enabling the area to function like a veranda during the mild days experienced almost year round.
The pool infinity edge is cantilevered out nearly six meters, supported on a column and protrude into the house when the doors are open, acting as a temperature stabilizer.
A storey was added containing the main suite, pajama lounge, kid's study area and kid's bedrooms.
Extra garages were needed and the housekeepers cottage was built on this.
