Luxury Penthouse In Johannesburg

A penthouse is certainly a place which involves money, luxury, evolution and the concept of a “smart house”. It is also the case with this three-level penthouse in Johannesburg, South Africa, which is the best example of evolution in the 21st century, standing for the idea of  “smart home” with all sorts of automatic objects, lighting, safety and individualism at the same time.

It definitely provides a pleasant, safe and comfortable environment, fitting the new standards of modern urban living so many people long for nowadays. If you take into account the fact that you seem to levitate above the city, you say enough; the materials used emphasize the impression of space, transparency and meditation.

At night the garden seems to appear  as a sacred place which promises to reveal unknown things, but it also represents the ideal place to relax after a long day of work. The  furniture and decor elements, with their specific look,  seem to be connected among them, just as the colours emphasize the uniqueness of the rooms.

In fact, the general tendency is of black and white, the real colours being just essential accents, just as the artistic elements (sculptures, glassware ceramics, art objects)  have an essential role, that of drawing attention upon soul and depth. Everything is  simple but contemporary and contributes to the touch of classical elegance and general modernity of the place.The entire project was deone by SAOTA (Stefan Antoni Olmesdahl Truen Architects) and OKHA Interiors.
