Luxurious Living in Johannesburg, South Africa: House Bassonia

Situated within the heart of Bryanston in Johannesburg South Africa, House Bassonia by Nico Van Der Meulen Architects borders the Riverclub golf course. Positioned on top of a sloping site, it elevates above its surroundings. Originally a single story traditional house, the brief involved adding a second story and increasing the areas to more than double its existing size. The style of the house was modernized, prioritizing the views, while ensuring natural northern light penetrates every room. The idea of elongating and stretching the building to its maximum length was birthed upon by studying the layout of the existing plan. Likened to an elastic band that is stretched, the concept resulted in lengthened facades that framed the landscape.

Strategically using frameless folding doors allowed for a transparency on the two longest facades making this contemporary home truly unique. Brilliantly planned and designed, the layout of the house promises views of the golf course from almost every room. Long and narrow in form, the design was successful in seamlessly merging the interior with the exterior. Walking over a Koi pond before entering the house sets the tone of tranquility which engulfs you as you make your way through the well designed open plan double volume spaces. Suspended bridges and a glass staircase pierce the majestic double volume space contributing to the open and airiness of this design.
