Envisioned by world renowned architecture firm Nico van der Meulen Architects House Mosi represents a standard in residential architecture. House Mosi is a modern mansion that exudes simplicity and extravagance at the same time, having absolutely everything that one would desire materialized in simple shapes and volumes with extraordinary aesthetic values .
Every single detail has been considered in the design and renovation process, the home sitting on a privileged site that hosted an old 1950`s South African residence previously. The world renowned architecture firm materialized here yet another dream with an urban feel as an upgrade for the old home.
Here is a more detailed description from the architects:
“Rudolph van der Meulen designed a plan with many alterations and additions to allow a sketch with four bedrooms and large entertaining areas. Large double volume spaces and flat roofs have been used in the alteration to keep vertical expansion in mind for the client’s future.
As a result of an impeccable renovation, the house is divided into public and private spaces. These are divided by an internal water feature and a bridge that is used to enter the private areas of the home. The entrance hall and a study are so separated from the private home. To honor the owner’s wish of an urban and open feel, the interior and exterior entertaining areas have been blurred by sliding stacking doors that open up the whole facade.
Every detail of the interiors of this home has been styled by M Square Lifestyle Necessities, so to create a perfect synergy between exterior and interior. Focusing on creating a livable, relevant and expressive home, the large interior planes were perfectly balanced through the use of specifically chosen furniture and artwork, which were all used as visual statements. By using a neutral palette, a warm environment was created by bringing in touches of color through rich and bold accessories and furnishings such as the Domino coffee table and bold flower pattern ottoman.
Natural wood elements articulate texture and depth; while essential to the welcoming ambiance of the home, the correct styling enhances each room and brings the architectural design to a full and complete circle. The timeless grandeur of this home lies in its harmonious balance between warm textured finishes and vast neutral color planes.”
