Private Villa


In one of the older quarters of old Kuwait, near a large park, this project is a residence for two separate generations of the same family. It is really two houses with shared services gathered around a common courtyard. A mosaic-lined lap pool and connecting bridge are featured elements of the central space, which also has a huge, stainless steel-clad cantilever projecting from its entry.
A sculptural glass enclosure at the rear of the courtyard contains a standing shear wall and floating staircases. A cylindrical element contains a stair which gives access to the roof.
