Reborn House is a seaside property in Bidaa, Kuwait. With the western elevation facing a busy street, we opted to carve a series of openings out of the main mass. Cuts were made at acute angles and the windows were set within a slight tilt. By partially masking the windows, we were able to create shadows that minimize solar heat gain while allowing for diffused light to enter the house. On the other hand, the eastern elevation (facing the sea) benefits from deep set openings and balconies that maximize both views and shade.Save this picture!© Gijo Paul GeorgeSave this picture!PlanWhen the client first approached us, the initial foundation had already been laid out before they decided to change the design. The general spatial configuration from the previous design had to be retained for the organization of programs in the plan.Save this picture!© Gijo Paul GeorgeAll main open spaces, such as dining, living and reception spaces, are situated to the East and the West while the services and corridors are along the Southern and Northern facades. Amenities, such as dressing rooms and bathrooms, receive light through the slit windows from these elevations that face the neighboring homes.Save this picture!© Gijo Paul GeorgeThis private villa includes a large interior atrium bringing in lots of natural light to the heart of the house, while the internal corridors connect the main functional spaces from both ends. The main atrium is lined with louvers that serve as form and function: shielding the view of movement along the staircase; and activating the triple high space with texture that creates a play of shadows throughout the day.Save this picture!© Gijo Paul GeorgeThe exterior volume consists of a white orthogonal mass sitting on a stone plinth that has been carved into for accessing the ground and basement levels. On the eastern façade, the carved mass acts as a sunken courtyard for the guest reception while the stone cladding continues to the interior spaces as flooring and wall cladding for the core wall. The stone wall, the white walls and the wooden louvers creates a playful contrast energizing the central atrium.Save this picture!© Gijo Paul GeorgeProject gallerySee allShow lessO-Tree House / Junsekino Architect and DesignSelected ProjectsAIRICE Future Agriculture Cultural Tourism Town / PMT PartnersSelected Projects Share “COPY” Save this picture!© Gijo Paul George+ 24Curated by Hana Abdel Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard “COPY” Interior Designer: last_img read more
