The living arrangement is intended for the group of a popular legal counselor in Kuwait; the family incorporates his wife, an energetic promoter and supporter of style in Kuwait, their two children, and his senior kin with whom he shares the legacy of the family-possessed plot. The plot is situated in one of Kuwait’s most lavish local locations. It involves full three-sided corner, with an extraordinary presentation to Kuwait City’s cutting edge horizon on its North principle height.
During our first meeting with the client, we were requested that outline a house with a remarkable, particular and contemporary expression while keeping up a symmetrical arranging guideline . To accomplish an energizing ( Un exhausting ) environment ,the house is to contain various exercises and utilitarian projects, keep up full security, shield from the cruel environment, lastly, to contain two particular houses, one for his family, and the other for his kin.
Practically, our longing to consolidate the customer’s necessities and the site’s givens inside of an all encompassing brought together arrangement drove us to make particular spatial zones that highlight the utilitarian and security prerequisites, while keeping up an effective and adjusted arranging setup for the clients. The arranging idea advanced into two units inside of the same structure, the first unit contains two zones isolated by a vertical dissemination center and assembling spaces; the second unit, for the senior kin, is isolated by a vertical court that elements a water component and permits stroll sunlight.
Thoughtfully, our aim was to produce an envelope that brings together the two homes, consolidates ideal protection and formal expression while hiding the differing project components contained inside. We continued hunting down and distinguishing materials, surfaces and structures in building up the spaces, corresponding relations and envelope of the habitations. The procedure finished into a formal arrangement with a purported murkiness to the cruel outside environment and controlled introduction to It.
A stone clad, box-like volume encases the first and second levels, the private zones, which floats over and shades the ground level. Sporadic ceaseless cross section like lines that cut into and bind together the volume intersperse the rises, while opening up to outside, where required; thus, making a thick stone screen that edges vistas into the city’s horizon. In addition, to improve the material nature of the home, we differentiated the harshness of the outside’s surfaces that shield against the earth with smooth and delicately textured surfaces for the inside.
