The Cube Private House by Ahmed Habib - Lines

Home > Winners > #83316


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
The Cube

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Private House

INSPIRATION:
The main mass was based around a primary form (Cube) & the two imposing stone walls that were inspired by ancient temples creating an approach with the moat like bridge to the house main entrance. The central black metal screen design was inspired by an Islamic pattern and external courts were inspired from Arabic traditional houses.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Conceptual idea was to explore the architectural relation between solid and void through addition and subtraction within a cube, creating a dialogue between indoor and outdoor. Floor plan design is based on 2 shifted masses creating an internal atrium (includes air conditioning system which will help to enjoy the garden experience throughout the year) and 2 external courts in the front and rear inspired from traditional houses. Shifting direction was chosen based on 2 aspects; Cultural, privacy obscuring the south side neighbors view & Environmental, creating more natural ventilation & providing needed shade to the front yard.

Entrances: - Main: For Family members & guests - Diwaneya: For Formal Events (Male Guests) - Front Yard: Access to Basement Front yard - Back Yard: Direct Access to kids back yard - Services: Direct Access for Male Staff & main Kitchen Floors Functions: - Ground: Reception & Dinning Spaces for Guests - Basement: Daily Living Spaces including Pool, GYM, Kids Playroom & Green areas - First: Kids bed rooms and living space - Second: Master Bed room with all required facilities & private office - Roof: Outdoor roof garden and service rooms
