One=Four=One Family House

Best Project of Private Residence

About the project
The design aims to reflect the concept of the house as a constantly changing space that is adjustable to changes in correspondence to the expanding and dynamic nature of the family that occupies it. The project is considered as an incomplete multi-phase architectural design project that can be constructed and applied according to the conditions of the occupant family in relevance to their needs of spaces. The design is located on a steep cliff on a linear elongate site parallel to the main road. It is designed with respect to the surrounding nature and panoramic views that are offered by the site. The house is designed to provide maximum use of sunlight and wind corridors as well as a variety of open, semi-open, and private spaces.
