HOUSE MEULSTROOM

The beautiful House Meulstroom is situated in Stellenbosch, where our clients lived in an existing house dating from the 1930’s. Strey team then drew up the conceptual design of this project, considering the strong concept our clients had in mind, a contemporary barn style home. The house had to make use of eco-technological features, where Friedrich incorporated solar energy, alternative heating and rainwater cathments in the conceptual plans.

The design of the house comprises of four barn structures, each with their own program and linked by a central staircase which is designed like an old storage silo. The ground floor has an open plan living space that hosts a lounge, dining and kitchen space with a private scullery and laundry space. As you land on the first floor, it leads into an open study area, a main bathroom and en-suite bathroom and an additional four large bedrooms, where two is fitted with an en-suite bathroom. 

"Raw concrete shuttering was used on the ceilings and yard walls, and the kitchen has a modern country range. Wood finishes and decorative features add texture and rural styling. Generous light-capturing sliding windows are secured with sliding shutters concealed in the cavity walls when not in use."
