Right after being influenced by 2 iconic modernist houses, Phillip Johnson’s 1949 Glass Home and Mies van dieser Rohe’s 51 Farnsworth Home, South Africa architect Gilbert Colyn created the Invermark House meant for himself within 1969.
However, since then the home had dropped into a condition of downfall, and through the years numerous improper alterations plus additions had been added to the home. In 2013, Stefan Antoni, Director from the architecture company SAOTA, bought the house hoping to bring it in return to its original style.
Included in the update, the particular pool has been moved in the dark hill side of the home to the front side of the house that will receives a lot more sun and it has views from the sea.
Inside the house, screens had been removed to enhance the movement of the residing areas, plus bring it up dated with modern living.
As the swimming pool was taken off the back garden, a new backyard was grown that integrated a yard and a line of Elderlower (Sambucus Nigra) trees.
Back within, and there are a second residing area simply off the kitchen area.
Within the master bedroom, framework and displays were eliminated to make the bed room and in room bathroom one particular large open up space.
