Our Client's desire to own a get-away home in a serene and calm environment opened up an avenue for a modern style home to exist within an area commonly known for regular style homes.
Ikenne Country Home was designed to provide the occupant a soothing and relaxing experience through openness of the spaces and visual link of the living spaces with the outdoor landscaped court space. The occupants have the benefits of a relaxing outdoor space either as a visual part of their indoor space or as a space to breathe easy and reflect.
Characterised by large spans of terraces and outdoor decks, Ikenne Country Home sits on a gross foot print of 600sqm. Designed to enclose a generous landscaped court and beautifully designed swimming pool, Ikenne Country Home exists on two levels, with 3 bedrooms, a gymnasium, a dry and wet kitchen, an indoor courtyard and living spaces that flow into eachother and the pool deck; existing on the ground floor. While the upper floor consists of 4 bedrooms, a movie room and large span of terrace space.
On this scheme we explored the use of Vertical shading elements as a key part of our facade. This allowed us to break our character long horizontal elements visually.
With the strong use of horizontal and verticasl shading elements, a centrally located courtyard as a visual core of the internal spaces and generous terrace spaces. Ikenne Country Home is bound to offer our client the soothing experience desired.
