Luxurious high end architecture has been materialized all over the world but in some places like Dubai, Singapore, South Africa and some parts of Europe, modern dream homes are found more and more often along with extreme organic architecture and parametric designs, proving everyday that boundaries of architecture and design can be lifted if you have the “right pocket”.
Ahead we have a dream home, state of the art mansion featuring high end materials and every feature that one can possibly desire. The mansion aesthetics are based on three main materials, stone, glass and wood, which along with other materials are claiming high end architecture apparel.
As most of these mansions, this ones is also positioned on a cliff with an amazing view, overlooking a part of the city. At night the city lighted up offers a great view for the owners and the home itself is being lighted up in a great manner. Every corner of the home that has aesthetics values it`s being pointed out at night, when the swimming pools are becoming mirrors for this “small” dream home and every surface gains new values being transformed by the artificial light.
As you would expect cantilevers are a must in such designs, therefore making a huge statement here, the main bedroom surpasses the structure by six meters, creating an extremely dynamic perspective view, mirrored by the infinity pool below.
Description from Metropole Architects:
“Clean architectural lines with a warmth and Zen like ambiance.
The clients requested that we create a dream house for their site in the Zimbali forest estate. Several bodies of water, including Koi ponds, water features and a rimflow swimming pool appear to coalesce into one, and flow through the house and out into the forest. The stacked roof is fragmented and linked with flat roof slabs, in correspondence to the spatial arrangement of the rooms below, which both scales and articulates the massing of the house. The main bedroom suite cantilevers six metres over the patio below, providing protection from the weather, as well as “wow” factor. Large amounts of glazing optimize views of the indigenous bush that encapsulates the house, and together with the palette of raw materials including natural timber, off shutter concrete, water and natural stone cladding, offset the clean architectural lines with a warmth and Zen like ambiance.”
