Reminiscent of a barn, the Lotheringen House in South Africa is a cool contemporary space that exudes a dynamic sensibility unlike any other. Designed by Emilio Eftychis, this South African home was crafted with the interplay of spaces in mind. It’s multifaceted and multi-storied with a great transition between indoors and out.
Built in a type of L shape configuration, a pivot point is created and allows a portion of the upper level to cantilever out over the yard to create a shaded patio. While much of the back of the home is floor to ceiling glass panels, the front is concrete and metal. Its interior mimics much of the exterior with minimal decoration and pops of color in the furnishings.
