house moy by nico van der meulen architects

‘house moy’ by nico van der meulen architects



in daylight, ‘house moy’ displays interiors that seem unpretentious with minimalist elegance. the emphasis is placed on the openness of the space connecting the garden with the inner workings of its surrounding. during the evening, the environment transforms through the use of ambient light features. the entrance hall and formal lounge display an array of punctured wall and ceiling panes lit up by cold cathode lights. developed by south african nico van der meulen architects, the interior fabric articulates the functional elements of the building as highlighted features.
