In Cape Town, South Africa sits a beautiful modern home. This is a project by Greg Wright Architects which is actually a renovation of this house. The rear of the home has large windows and sliding doors which open the interior to a large patio with an outdoor lounge and dining area. The backyard has a swimming pool. The dark exterior presents a bold modern look when combined with the greenery of the trees. Inside the house, there are many dark elements that are continued throughout the space. However, the use of wood adds a warmth and lightness to the interior. The living room features a tiled wall behind the television and below it is plenty of firewood storage for the fireplace located next to it. The space also features a wood-framed window seat and access to a small outdoor patio on the right. A large window makes the space bright. You can see here the dining area with a round glass dining table and the living room with dark gray sofa.
