This luxurious minimalist style house presents a perfect fusion between interior and exterior spaces. It is like a breath of fresh air.

Minimalist style house
An important decision was made by the architects not to disturb any of the mature trees or vegetation on site during the building of this luxurious minimalist style house. This directs the composition of the architecture as the building’s volumes were designed to wrap around the well established natural features.
Working from the outside in, the garden, although not huge is rich with mature tropical planting, stylish paved walkways and a cool tranquil green pool. The beauty of this serene space becomes fully integrated with the interior design of the luxurious minimalist style house. The ground floor walls incorporate vast expanses of glass so that the living spaces become fused with the garden. The minimalist style architecture is uncomplicated in form and arrangement and focuses on a well ordered layout of simple rectilinear spaces.
The main living areas are open plan and streamlined, the light and airy interior is enhanced by the white decorative scheme. Wooden floors add warmth to the main living rooms with sophisticated black stone floors utilized in the kitchen and bathroom for practicality. In addition, black features are incorporated throughout to add contrast and definition to the internal structures and shapes. The views through the windows and opening glass screens are the main contributor to the harmonious peaceful atmosphere that is apparent in this luxurious minimalist style house.
Superbly designed fixtures and fittings add elegance to the bathroom and kitchen areas, these eye catching details, in combination with the highly polished finish of the whole project, is what sets this project apart as something special and luxurious.
