Today is the day of our signature “Around the World“, this time in Australia. So, let’s go to discover this contemporary house. You’ll never be disappointed!
Take a look this modern architecture and fall madly in love…
Architecture and interior design firm Malan Vorster, have designed the House Paarman Tree House in Cape Town, South Africa. The small one bedroom home in the trees was built from materials that when left untreated, would allow the materials to weather naturally with the surrounding forest.
The house is located in a clearing of the forest, on a bit of a hill, providing spectacular elevated views.
The home makes use of vertical height, and has been arranged around the geometry of a square with four surrounding circles, creating a pin-wheel plan layout.
A raised timber and weathered steel ramp leads to the front entrance of the home, and into the first level of the modern house.
The first floor is home to the living room that opens up to a balcony. Decorated in light greys and earth tones, the room compliments it’s wood surroundings.
Upstairs in the bedroom, a glass safety railing has been added in front of the bed to provide an unobstructed view of the trees.
On the roof of this modern home there’s a deck with a dining table and built-in seating. Being on the roof of the home makes it feel like you are dining in, and with the tops of the trees.
