The idea of this house is to show how a concrete construction holds the walls together and creates an enclosed space with its light white walls. I wanted to create a modern architectural composition with the building and the surrounding garden. When you look at the roof plan with the garden it forms together a frame-like composition.

The first floor features a big room, where the sitting and the dining takes place, there is also a grand piano. The kitchen, the bedroom, and one bathroom are also on the first floor. The second floor is more open. It is one room that serves as a study, TV room and a gym. There is also one bathroom on the second floor. (it is unfurnished in the pictures, but don't worry, I furnished it before uploading)

Living Room

The garden has a few fountains and a pool, I wanted it to look a bit minimalistic. I really hope that you like my attempt of making a nice contemporary home.

Very sleek and stylish. Love the colours throughout the house. Thank you for sharing.

I also love the house, but what I really like is how you handled the fencing. It never entered my mind to use a half wall with a hedge. Great work and thank you for sharing it!

I'm not normally one for modern architecture, especially when it's made of concrete, there was only really one exception. But now I really like your design too, there's just something about the vision you have created here that I find appealing. Thanks

I love the overhangs on the platforms/decks and the simple, yet swanky landscaping.
