The SGNW House by Metropole Architects is a spectacular open concept home in Zimbali, South Africa. This house uses a combination of rock, wood, slate and concrete for the exterior of the house, resulting in a rustic and sophisticated feel.

The interior of the house is well lit with tribal designs, safari print carpets and mainly white designs. The backyard features Koi ponds, water features and a rimflow swimming pool that flows into the house and the forest. 

This house has become an ultimate dream home, and it would make the perfect retreat for a family or couples getaway. This space definitely has a ‘wow’ factor, and the natural materials such as the timber and stone walls create a zen-like atmosphere.
