The Homestead is located in the Phinda Game Reserve, an award-winning ecotourism destination in the lush KwaZulu-Natal region in northern South Africa. This luxurious African villa embraces the surrounding bush and invites it in through the use of glass, openness, a lateral plan form with courtyards, ponds and narrow decks.
I love how this stylish and sophisticated interior design combines the traditional with the contemporary; a natural-toned color palette beautifully blends various materials such as unrefined wood beams and a modern central fireplace, glass chandeliers and clay vases, and all sorts of unique accessories.
Throughout this modern villa, materials have been finely wrought and applied with delicacy and finesse; rock is tumbled into gabions rather than pointed with cement; gumpoles are shaved to reveal the pale heartwood and sandstone is honed.
the lounge and dining room have practically no solid walls at all; the decks terrace is leveled with the ground in front and the pool licks out at the pan. The combination of a simple orthogonal plan and refined materials create a clean cut, contemporary home for luxurious yet sustainable living.
In the rooms beds are placed forward to embrace the view;
your own private gym;
plush sofas on the outdoor deck;
