This house develops on the ground floor longitudinally that starts from a grid where private functions are placed on one side and public functions on the other. These can allow the house to have a constant integration with nature in cross ventilation and interior, including complying with the premise of the design: all spaces are oriented towards the north.

A direct result of the structural logic of this house is the grid on the elevation. Began with the concrete slabs and the stone-clad walls, it continues with the beams that are arranged to the plates with wooden slabs and ceilings then ends with the stone tank. This tank is defined as the house’s iconic finish.

The exterior language is unified with the mobile iron parasols’ placement that offers privacy between the house spaces, protecting from the west sunlight as well.

This house directs and opens its awesome visuals awesomely towards the main patio and therefore towards the horizontal slits of light and ventilation and the neighborhood´s golf courses are generated between the beginning of the slabs and the end of the concrete walls on the exterior facades, south, and north.

This house is characterized by material, structural, and functional sincerity with clear tours thanks to the visual link between spaces and the spaces’ distribution. The route from the entrance hall of the house to any rooms inside is characterized by a feeling of comfort and a dynamic movement, resulting from the combination of the used materials with the interior design.
