When the owners of this residence approached Nico van der Meulen Architects, their short was straightforward: “to design a stunning, cutting-edge, contemporary home”. The only absolute necessity was that it had to be visually extraordinary with an indoor swimming pool.
Thank you Laura Doriguzzi Bozzo for sending us this venture!
Rudolph van der Meulen, from Nico van der Meulen Architects, explains: “The consequence is a design the place the 3 dimensionality of the building is celebrated with intersecting planes of steel and glass ‘hovering’ over the strong aspects of concrete and plastered brick. Aluminum louvers are utilized for sun control and privacy, even though producing depth and layering. The ground floor was purposely lifted over the landscape to improve the views of the backyard, and to generate degree distinctions in the ground floor plane. The major bedroom cantilevers more than angled concrete columns and reinforces the ‘hovering’ notion. The indoor pool and residing location is enclosed with stacking frameless glass doors which gives the inhabitants the opportunity to entirely open up the room. Drinks can be conveniently served right to the pool by way of an in-water pool bar. The very first floor is split with the children’s bedrooms on the one side, and the primary bedroom on the other. The principal bedroom has a tiny personal lounge area and is open program to the bathroom. Exterior louvers give privacy for the floor-to-ceiling glass showers. With the exception of the residence theatre and the 2nd guest space, which was added later, all rooms are north dealing with. Even the kitchen that is found behind the indoor pool receives direct north sunlight from the substantial windows set in the angled roof in the course of winter. The interior style staff from M Square Lifestyle Design and style ensured that finishes and fittings accentuated the architecture of the property. All fittings have been especially created and made to suit the architecture of the home. “The interior displays the exterior with intersecting planes generating factors of curiosity. The exposed steel roof trusses, steel I-beams, and the bent steel staircase tie the interior with the exterior and refer to the quasi industrial aesthetic of the property.”
