As usual, Nico Ven Der Meulen have just delivered a beautiful residence in South Africa, I had to share it with you.

From the Architects:

Designed by the highly acclaimed Werner van der Meulen, House Sar encapsulates luxury, comfort and functionality in a minimalist architectural setting. The clients approached Nico van der Meulen Architects with a modest single storey pitched roof house.
