Residing in South Africa are some of the most extraordinary homes in the world. The area’s inhabitants have a fascination for contemporary design, utilizing plenty of large glass windows found all over the home’s facade.
This is exactly what you get with the Nico Van Der Meulen Architects designed Glass House located in Johannesburg, South Africa. This massive home spans nearly 27,000 square feet providing not only enough space for a single family, but perhaps the entire family tree.
According to Nico Van Der Meulen 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”.
