Located in the residential area of Karland Park is this captivating tribute to biophilic building design, seamlessly blending with the natural environment. Positioned on a plateau at the higher elevation of the site, the property takes advantage of its west-facing orientation, capturing the beauty of Easterly/Northeasterly winds and the evening setting sun.
The ground floor level showcases a thoughtfully designed open plan kitchen/living room area, promoting a fluid and interconnected living space. An attached laundry/pantry room adds functionality to the layout. Upon entering the building, an indoor courtyard welcomes residents and guests, providing glimpses of the adjacent balcony. The entrance strategically separates public and private spaces, with the left side of the home dedicated to shared areas and the right side to private retreats.
The site benefits from two access roads, ensuring convenience for both visitors and residents. A unique feature is the access road for residents under the ground floor, offering an added layer of privacy and exclusivity. Strategically placed planters serve as a natural privacy barrier, enhancing the sense of seclusion and tranquility.
The design's material palette embraces natural elements, with tones of wood, white rendered concrete and stone, creating a serene and calming atmosphere. This choice not only complements the surrounding landscape but also promotes a sense of harmony within the residence. The integration of a tonal green plant palette further softens the architectural elements, providing a refreshing contrast and enhancing the overall connection to nature. This contemporary masterpiece stands as a testament to sustainable and harmonious living, where architecture coexists with the environment.
