House Sed

Originally a single storey home, the brief for the additions and alterations of this home called for the modernizing of the house and adding a second storey to increase the areas to more than double its existing size.
The Koi pond and water feature at the entrance of the house set a tone of tranquility for the well designed open plan double volume spaces. The staircase floats8 over a pond that is heated in winter, was designed by Nico van der Meulen, using the glass balustrades and the double volume window behind it as the structure, obviating the need for steel frames.
