House Tati, Johannesburg
House Tati is the ultimate bachelor pad getaway, a contemporary five-story home that was finished in 2011, and can be found in Bassonia, Johannesburg, South Africa.
The building is located on a very steep and narrow site with 180 degree views to the east, which allowed the architectural design to take advantage of the spectacular views, but acted as a challenge when the architects wanted to add habitable space.
Rudolph van der Meulen from Nico van der Meulen Architects explains that the teams had to work on an existing structure and creativity allowed them to redesign the existing space making the most of natural light and the stunning views.
The contemporary makeover was given to the entire building: from the street to the east façade one can enjoy the modern feel thanks to the use of concrete, steel and glass.
