In order to optimise on the mountain views, additional window area was added on both floors so that the inside would embrace the outside- pure nature. The lighting is harmonious and inclusive. By creating these sensations and minimalizing the spaces giving each element of the building its own identity within a whole that is both complete in and of itself.
“João’s professional manner, her attention to detail, her creative talents and the absolute trust we had in her handling our funds, were critical elements to the success of the project.”
Cape Dream House
The volumetry of this object is pure and simple, consisting of a horizontal plane and mirrored walls, with endless personalized detail work to all spaces internally and externally; from audio rooms, medieval wine and champagne cellars with ceiling frescos, studies layouts to wall units, concrete fireplaces, dropped floating ceilings, designer lighting, indoor planters
“We were ecstatic with the end product and would and will always recommend you.”
It was the second project which arcinterior executed for Holmes, it felt like a continuation of style, flare, and relationship. Sleek French contemporary style, house Holmes epitomizes elegance, luxury, and great outdoor living.
Incorporating wrought iron balustrades, floor to ceiling windows, high ceilings, panel moldings on walls and ceilings, crystal chandeliers, trim moldings and fireplace mantel, stain glass doors and windows, deep cornices, mosaic pool tiles, the neutral colors, gray with white tones reveal the hidden elegance of all spaces.
The minimalistic design embarked by arcinterior included a teak patio deck which extended out onto the beach with the intention to focus on all five senses: when the vast glass panels are open, one is instantaneously immersed in the sound and scent of the sea, captivated by the spectacular views.
Creating a minimalist style with all architectural elements working together with nature, allowing the natural charm of both elements to interconnect. The waterfall by the pool created a natural welcome at the front door, as you enter your eyes are immediately drawn up into the house onto the crystal pipe chandelier which is suspended from the double volume ceiling.
“Our expectations have been more than fulfilled.”
The house needed to extend itself from the interior to the exterior by the implementation of natural polished stone finishes, stylizing with classical English country architectural designs and furniture, thus the client appointed the master craftsman Pierre Cronje known for his innovative vision, high quality, custom designed and hand-crafted solid wood furniture.
“Her attention to detail, her creative talents and trustworthy management of our funds, facilitated the overall success of our holiday home. “
This home is designed in an Italian renaissance style, which is richly evident with the inclusion of columns, focused on symmetry and specific shapes or styles, which are characteristic of the era.
Although contemporary style dominates, it has been designed with a Moroccan and Mediterranean flare. This is particularly evident in the design of the Nidus Walls, “nidus” originates from the Latin word for “Nest”. The niches together with the soft antique paint techniques and concealed lighting create a soft and warm feel to the walls.
“João was attentive to the brief and listened to the requirements of what I as client wanted and made many suggestions in a very professional manner.”
