Alibizia House is yet another breathtaking cliff view modern mansion located in a small architecture heaven entitled South Africa, Simbithi Eco-Estate in KwaZulu-Natal to be more exact. This is I think the third modern dream home designed by Metropole Architects featured on our website, the first two being Luxurious Contemporary Modern South African SGNW House by Metropole Architects and Luxurious Modern Mansion with Huge Cantilever in Contemporary Style – Godoy House in Mexico this making no exception from the luxurious set of rules pinned by the first two.
The dream home strikes us with a great position in the site and with a huge volume, these two attributes being the ground work of a great object of architecture. The home is developed on a horizontal plane offering expansive views from a huge set of perspective points. I think we can easily call the dream home a landmark in its site, being very easily used in such as manner, specially during the night when the lighting is accentuating every little corner. In the interior design we have black and white as background and beige colors pallets as main tones, most of them being obtained from wood textures.
We find this modern mansion humongous, it seems a little too much in it`s context, even for a landmark. What do you think?
