The geometry of the City Villa is a very interesting one, being the defining feature of the design ARRCC created specifically for this project. This is a modern family home located in South Africa. Its design is a collection of rectangular volumes placed on top of each other. Some of these volumes cantilever to the sides, forming terraces. A stone wall contrasts with the concrete, adding texture and diversity to the design. Other contrasting elements include the brass front door which was custom designed and all the glass surfaces.
The street facade is covered in fireproof timber and has a very understated and simple look. There’s a small private courtyard in front, sort of like a buffer zone between the internal spaces and the street. The wood on the facade is stained and has a rich finish which contrasts with the galvanized steel elements. The North facade, the one facing the river, has a totally different structure. This is an all glass facade which doesn’t exactly give much privacy but, at the same time, exposes the internal spaces to the expansive views. The glass also contributes to an overall look that’s robust on one hand but also open and airy on the other hand. Such contrasts are actually quite common with this project.
The window you see here is a cool feature that comes as a standard element for all container pools. It offers a view inside the pool and it lets light filter through the water. As far the aesthetics go, the standard color of the pools is black but those interested can also request a specific color. The pools can be installed both above and in-ground so a lot of details depend on the type you choose. Only two service connections are required when installing the pool: natural gas/propane for the heater and 40 amp electrical service and designated ground wire. The cost depends on the size of the pool and ranges between $26,900 and $35,000. The pools are customizable in a lot of ways and they also offer the option to control all the settings via smartphone using an app. This includes settings such as the temperature, the lighting and the jets. Costumers can also choose from a variety of different types of covers for their container pool, ranging from simple snap button models to electronically-controls covers that are also child-proof and retractable.
