Creative Renovation Gives Modern Life to an Existing Frame

Creative Renovation Gives Modern Life to an Existing Frame

While many architects may find it preferable to start every new home from scratch, building each new corner, wall, and roof from a completely blank slate, thats not always possible or even desirable. This home, named House Sar and located outside of Johannesburg in South Africa, started with an entirely different look and feel. It was not until the homeowners enlisted architect Werner van der Meulen, from Nico van der Meulen Architects, that it took on the open and modern life that it now has. Using the original framework, van der Meulen was able to turn a dark one story home into an open celebration of light, air, and wholly modern design.
