This one is for all our mountain lovers out there! Being high up in the mountains can give you a new perspective on life, along with a chance to cleanse your lungs with fresh air free of daily pollution. Living in the middle of nature does wonders for your well-being as well!
As we travel to South Africa, we are given the gift of observing a modern vineyard villa that makes suburbia look like a cake walk.
Designed by GASS Architecture Studios, an innovative design company located in Johannesburg and Cape Town, this modern vineyard villa sits atop rolling hills overlooking fertile landscapes.
The outside deck is generous with length as the wooden floors are kissed by the sun. Inside, the walls are painted a soft white which is the perfect backdrop for subtle colors and textures scattered about the home. With wood and brick being a running theme, there’s no surprise that the border of the home is lined in stone, while some of the blinds sport a more natural look. Additionally, for each room, floor-to-ceiling glass panels move aside for access to the balcony for a view from all angles. What a great view for a morning stretch!
With this home, the teams at GASS were able to successfully add rustic elements with contemporary ones. How’s that for country life!
