Individuality knows no bounds

The backdrop to this beautiful project couldn’t be more idyllic. Set against a luscious green forest and rolling fields, not to mention a perfect blue sky… it’s almost the stuff of fairytales. The overall composition is just magnificent.

Created using FunderMax’s Max Exterior in natural wood shades, this carefully conceived villa boasts a unique design. Bold in its outlook with its captivating geometric form, this con-temporary home demands to be noticed. Designed to offer a weathered look, these warm and welcoming wood toned panels are complemented with a number of ‘reveals’ which give the viewer a flash of the building’s contemporary red and white interior.

There’s something very raw and urban about this project from Bruno Pantz - stand-out as always his architecture is. It makes a real statement. The soft natural tones of its exterior are complemented by eye-catching modern hues to the interior. Brazen reds and pristine white Max Interior HPL panels offer a contemporary edge, whilst floor to ceiling modern glazed units - spanning the whole length of the living area - allow light to flood in. The clever use of glass panelling inside also adds to the generous sense of space. Contemporary and formidable, it is however a home with a clear conscience.

The architect's vision

A labour of love between the client and the architect, the idea behind this striking individual project was not simply to just create a beautiful home. The objective was also to create a house which would give something back, hence why all of the materials were carefully chosen. The layout was also an aspect attentively considered, with its south facing orientation and geo-thermal heating. The end result is a successful synthesis between the highest environmental standards and the most exacting contemporary design.
