The eastern half features an open floor plan with large spaces and a dynamic layout easily accessible from the garage. Here inhabitants benefit from a master suite including a 14-metre long dressing room with fitted wardrobes and a glazed wine cellar. The dining area has ample room for a gathering of guests. The living area can also hold a family reunion.
According to the architect team remodeling was done on the parent building to increase the living space. They included four luxurious bedrooms and a large entertainment area in the original building. Since the original building was flat-roofed a vertical expansion was a viable option for the future. With the sliding and stacking doors and glassy windows the difference between internal and external areas are dissolved considerably giving the home an urban feel while retaining natural openness.
Geometries are brilliantly selected to make the building spacious enough out of a given limited area. Horizontal hinges are an example of their innovation and the hinges make the wooden pallets to shrink horizontally. This provides a large opening into the outer world despite the limited interior. Care has been given in every step of the Ame Lot Project to avoid stress on the ecology. And the Ame Lot seems to be an epitome of eco-friendly design.
The extremely high ceilings in the living area make a roomy and grandiose statement. The hanging globe lamps accentuate this height even further. The flight of stairs with a landing is neatly placed against a wall that occupies a minimum of space allowing full use of the ground floor without a big visual intrusion.
The house is essentially simple and glass doors and windows virtually blur differences between inside and outside. All units have been decorated with marvelous furniture and natural decorative items. Wooden floors walls and pebbles on courtyard offers exquisite visual treat. Presentation center Butterfly house Gable house Cascade house Garden house Visor house Courtyard house Pavillion house Lantern house Meadow house are the various units featured in this tremendous project.
Though the house looks smaller from the street you could assess it from a significant distance. To know the beauty of wood in construction you should visit this house. Wooden slabs are wonderfully arranged spectacularly painted in superior wood touch. This brings in more elegance to this building.
Situated in the outskirts of Cape Town in South Africa the residence has been designed to get a wonderful view of the mesmerizing sea and the beautiful mountains. The house built as a sequence of the nearby Nettleton 195 gets its design from Cape Town based studio SAOTA aka Stefan Antoni Olmesdahl Truen Architects.
