Architecture: Stunning Project "House Lam" in South Africa

Be inspired by this stunning project "House Lam" by Nico van der Meulen Architects. Location: Bedfordview, a suburb of Johannesburg, South Africa. This renovation was to alter and add to an existing 1950’s house and update its design. Love the style of architecture, the elegant, modern interior, as well as the used color palette of grey, white, black and red. The structural elements, the walnut wooden floors and stone feature wall are also very beautiful! 
M Square Lifestyle Design, captained by Phia van der Meulen, meticulously chose the interior touches that would distinguish this house: a natural wood finish runs through the house, from the pool deck, the bridge on the first floor, the bedroom floors and to the furniture itself. The colors used in the interior gives the home a warm feeling. 
The color palette within the interior was chosen to compliment the colours that were used in the buildings structural elements and to blend with the walnut wooden floors and stone feature wall. The colours used are neutral tones – grey, white & black – offset by splashes of bright red. The integration of white surfaces and dark natural wood theme runs throughout the house and can be seen with the kitchen counters and the bedrooms and bathrooms. The entire interior is elegantly simple, sleek and modern. The lighting in the interior plays an important role in the interior design. It was creatively placed to create a stylish well-lit core ambience and the use of lighting beautifully illuminates the exterior of the house, so that it stands out against the rocky outcrop in the night sky. For more details about this stunning project, see the two links below.
