A Contemporary Family Home In South Africa With A Sylvan-Themed Kid’s Bedroom

  • Architect: Studio HB
  • Interior Designer: Akara Design
  • Photography: Sarah De Pina
  • Location: Midrand, South Africa

Situated within a luxury estate in Midrand, Home V by Studio HB represents a contemporary approach to architectural design. This contemporary family home, designed for a challenging site, offers a seamless integration of functionality, aesthetics, and sustainability.

Spread across two storeys with four bedrooms, Home V maximizes the natural surroundings with expressive facades and staggered forms. The stepped profiles of the house create an illusion of grandeur, reminiscent of a three-storey structure, while optimizing views of the adjacent nature reserve.
