Concrete House in Johannesburg is a testament to the strength of a concept and its seamless execution – where the architecture, interiors and technology all work together harmoniously to translate a vision.
The house is perched on a steep hillside – the site of the building the basis of the architectural concept, guiding the creation of the spaces and the look of the interiors. ‘It is firmly rooted to the hillside through impressive engineering, while also protruding out as if it were shaped and morphed over time,’ says Nico van der Meulen, of Nico van der Meulen Architects, the firm behind this logistically challenging project.
The Concrete House
Architecture, interiors and technology all work together harmoniously to translate a vision.

But through these pioneering solutions, the home is an example of how the synergy of architecture and life enhancing technology can create an energy-efficient, convenient and comfortable home.
