The Ring House & Atelier by MZ Architects

Home > Winners > #29669


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
The Ring

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
House & Atelier

INSPIRATION:
The house – atelier has been designed for a young Saudi jewellery artist who wished to have a private living and working space expressing her soul and creations, within the garden of her family’s main residence where she currently lives.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The proposed building consists of a cylindrical volume embracing a rectangular one. The cylinder acts as a protective closed wall with a single narrow opening serving as the entrance, while the inside rectangle accommodates fluidly all the house functions necessary for the everyday life of the artist: a bedroom, a bathroom, a living room, a kitchen and an atelier. The interior space interacts smoothly with the serene outdoor atrium, a large terrace garden with one symbolic tree and a circular water feature.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
-

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The house is located in the city of Riyadh, in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Architecture, Building and Structure Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
By means of this composition, the ring-shaped structure figuratively resembles a cocoon ensuring a sense of intimacy and calmness for the house, that closes itself completely from the surroundings. It is a protected haven clearly expressing the soul of the artist, where she can retreat and let herself grow both as an independent person and a genuine designer. Inside her compact house and atelier, the artist can have a good rest, receive family and friends, work freely, experience new jewellery materials and forms, expand her imagination, ideas and techniques, and give birth to her creations.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Plot size: 1000sqm. Total built up area: 100sqm. Building material: Concrete.

TAGS:
House; Art; Atelier; Cocoon; Jewellery

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
-

CHALLENGE:
As the family-owned plot is surrounded by a chaotic concentration of residences, shops and a school, the main concern was to create a structure completely disconnected from its surrounding and from the family house, with a peaceful inner sanctuary isolated from the disturbances of the outside world.
