Doha Private Villas Villas by Mz Architects

Home > Winners > #30274


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Doha Private Villas

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Villas

INSPIRATION:
MZ Architects was appointed by a private Qatari client to design a family residential compound in Doha, Qatar.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
MZ Architects' proposed conceptual volume reflected the client's character, lifestyle and family needs: elegant, modest yet efficient structures encompassing all requested functions and services in a simple and poetic spirit. The series of “sliding” walls engendered private spaces, each of them creating a certain continuity between the interior function and the exterior, thus the diversity of the “microspaces” and their usage.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
To ensure privacy and independancy for each family, it was important to separate all house functions as well as service areas. Therefore, while all the houses are located in one common plot, each and every one of them has its own “majlis”, servants quarters, parking and gardens.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The construction started in 2008 and was completed in 2011.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Architecture, Building and Structure Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Although modern in its overall appearance, the architectural design of the project is characterized by its simplicity and classicism recalling ancient Qatari architecture, especially on the detail level. Yellow stone cladding, wood and metal are the main elements used in the compound. The finished concept stands as a one of a kind modern yet classic design in a rather monotonous surrounding.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The client's requirements were to design six villas in a plot of approximately 49,130 sqm dedicated to his brothers’ families and himself. One same typology would be used for four of the villas, while the remaining two would be smaller in size. To ensure privacy and independancy for each family, it was important to separate all house functions as well as service areas. Therefore, while all the houses are located in one common plot, each and every one of them has its own “majlis”, servants quarters, parking and gardens.
