Design Methodology: The landscape and the architecture are intertwined deliberately as a cohesive, none separable entity, blending the inside of the house with its immediate outdoors and the natural surrounding. A regional and a sustainable architecture design approach with plan layout to fit the client’s contemporary life style. The combination of rough / saw cut stone cladding ”Eclate”, The slanted red roof tiles, Zinc titanium curved forms combination representing a vernacular of a Mediterranean village. The insulated exterior double walls, clay/wood attics, deep recessed double glazed cedar wood windows and wooden trellises utilized in order to shade and temper the house interior environment, and sustain it comfortably with a timeless design form friendly to its immediate neighborhood.

House at Jawzat

The Interior Architecture i.e. material selection, finishes, and color spectrum /pallets, as well as the furniture pieces that has been designed by the office and produced locally, were carefully applied and placed in order to enforce the countryside Mediterranean atmosphere. The concept for both houses is to have a sustainable timeless style, harmonious with the natural surroundings and its immediate environment.
