Architecture Bryanston by Nic & Werner van der Meulen 003

Each room leads onto a balcony, and the entire house was built around three massive trees. This is the distinctiveness of the Bryanston House. To enhance the feel of openness and infinity, glass was chosen to feature throughout the residence, from the koi pond outside to the staircase and the windows that face into the garden and the lanai from the inside.

The living areas can become a large, unique space thanks to the frameless sliding doors that connect the family room, the kitchen and the open and covered patio.

Double volume spaces feature throughout the house, with the private lounge off the main bedroom as a mezzanine to the family room. The first floor presents three kids’ suites, a pyjama lounge with a kitchenette and the main suite.
