South Africa’s famous ‘Glass House’

After recently discovering a new exciting interest in architecture and design, today I have been led to South Africa…

Located in Johannesburg, this stunning, ultra modern, immaculate residence detailed to perfection was designed by Nico Van Der Meulen Architects. According to the architects, “the shape on the south side is a half circle, forming a horseshoe on the north side. The porte cochere is a suspended glass and stainless steel structure, with view into the house and a stainless steel and glass staircase, suspended over a heated pond, (which in summer acts as a temperature stabilizer, and in winter as a giant heater) with a circular, raised glass water feature in the background, framed by a beam two storeys high”.
