Located in South Africa, House Serengeti is a residential project designed by an awesome collaboration of Nico van der Meulen Architects, M Square Lifestyle Design, and M Square Lifestyle Necessities. The main idea of this project is to create a luxury family home with an environmentally-friendly design.
It is a north-facing villa with an application of earthy textures and raw materials. It combines different materials such as glass, wood, steel, and rock. The design also helps the architect to maximize indoor and outdoor living,
A large rusted steel-clad wall is mounted cleverly on the street in front of the south entry home. This wall can be slid back to reveal the double garage.
The rusted steel frames around the upper-level window frames and the entrance provides visual continuity to this house.
The deck walkway from the street to the front door of the house is made of Balau while Balau timber floor decking can be found in the master bathroom. In this bathroom, integrated spaces can be created by sliding black glass doors onto the terrace.
The back-sprayed glass is applied to avoid the use of tiles.
A two-foot-thick, stone-clad western wall has an important role as a heat absorber to make this home functional and smart. The windows are recessed and with brise soleil, this home is able to absorb the sun in winter and block it in summer at the same time.
M Square Lifestyle Design is responsible for interior design. You can feel a subtle sense of understated glamour through visual accents in the entire interior of this house.
The kitchen is built by Blueline Kitchens and designed by M Square Lifestyle Design. In 2009, it won the award for best-designed kitchen using Ceasarstone.
All light fittings and furniture in this home are supplied by M Square Lifestyle Necessities, incorporating some of the best brands such as Foscarini, Tom Dixon, Fontana Arte, Fantoni, Horm, and Molteni & C.
