Having finished two separate tasks for their youngsters on the Pearl Valley Golf Estate, the proprietors wanted to re-situate from Pretoria to the Cape and drew nearer AA Interiors to outline their new home at the De Zalze Winelands and Golf Estate. The Estate is situated on the Eastern edge of the Stellenbosch mountains and is one of South Africa’s head hitting the fairway private improvements, arranged among plantations and vineyards on the edges of the memorable town of Stellenbosch.


The folks adored the first outline methodology executed by AA Interiors for their two children’s undertakings thus their need was to make another home where the entire family could assemble and where the brief to the configuration group was to catch an advanced farmhouse which joined impressive components with an accentuation on shoeless extravagance and the utilization of normal materials.


The customers’ brief was to guarantee that when they involved the house all alone that it was not very huge and vacant, however in the meantime it likewise needed to take into consideration the entire family and grandchildren if they choose to stay over. The choice was made to keep all the amusement spaces and also the main room on the ground floor, with three extra visitor suites on the first level. As the De Zalze plan regulations just allowed a solitary story, the visitors’ suites were obliged in the rooftop storage rooms.


Two imperative criteria for the customers were that the task needed to incorporate a focal patio and that the fundamental living zones were to have twofold volume. At the front of the plot the idea of a customary “Cape Dutch Langhuis” with gabled closures was conceptualized. This some portion of the house was intended to contain the formal parlor and eating, casual parlor and braai room and the main room and en-suite, giving every one of these regions direct access to the front pool patio with tremendous perspectives to the encompassing vineyards and mountains. In the “Langhuis” open trusses were utilized to give every one of the rooms a bigger volume. To the back of the “Langhuis” the two side wings and a connecting entryway make a shielded focal patio which likewise outwardly interfaces the kitchen to the family TV lounge. Indistinguishable component stairs connection to the visitor room suites situated in the rooftop lofts of these back wings.


The proprietors of this home affection to enliven and needed the house to mirror their way of life. Key components of this incorporate the bespoke wine basement. Here the outline group made a fantastic glass wine divider. The oak timber cabinetry encases frameless glass racking which can house more than 400 jugs which are impeccably temperature controlled with hid refrigeration. The wine divider likewise works as a visual screen between the formal and casual family spaces. An emotional twofold volume stone clad chimney in the formal parlor is reflected by an inherent braai in the casual parlor. These regions of the house stream out onto the open air stimulation deck and boundlessness pool. Connected to the porch is an indented outside boma (an average South African open air walled in area). Here easygoing seating is organized around an open flame.


For the inside structural planning the configuration approach by Mark Rielly and Jon Case was to concentrate on the utilization of common natural materials, for example, timber and stone. Limed oak ground surface matched with nectar hued stone dividers stand out from dark charcoals and powdery white completions. These material materials include a feeling of unattractiveness and warmth to the contemporary building design. Various basic strengths are caught in the utilization of water elements and chimneys.


Werf dividers and a pergola secured walkway lead to the front passageway which opens into the patio entryway ignoring the intelligent lake and greenery. Glass pocket entryways make separate passageways and lead into the side wings. Central components of the passageways are the skimming model edges. Here Angus Taylor models are reflected in the cracked mirror divider cladding. The same broke example is again utilized as a part of the smokey mirror cladding of the stairways. Limed oak cantilevered treads, timber cladding with white stone edges and frameless glass balustrading add to the straightforwardness and airiness of these spaces. Clear passed up David Reade are suspended and reflected in the twofold volume stairwells including hobby.


A mix of striking and attentive lighting was utilized to make a “goodness” element and the layering of lighting set different mind-sets. Unpretentious lighting has been joined in all breaks and highlight bulkheads to give a warm shine to fringe edges. Disguised lighting has likewise been utilized to highlight and complement the natural regular completions. In the lounge area a tweaked precious stone crystal fixture by Martin Doller is suspended from the roof rafters. Other component lighting incorporates a specially crafted “ring” light by AA Interiors, over the casual braai room and a mark Willow Lamp in the primary room.


The inside furniture and stylistic layout were composed by Mark Rielly and Sarika Jacobs of AA Interiors. The furniture is present day and integral to the experience of the home. Material completes the process of including timber, textured calfskins and crude cloths include a modern feeling of downplayed extravagance. The customers’ adoration for shading has been presented with infusions of striking prints and energetic fabrics. Bespoke furniture from OKHA Interiors is highlighted all through.
