Location: Dubai, United Arab Emirates
A retrofit of an old style Dubai Villa. Reallocation of space internally and externally to reflect the living style of the new owners. The design of the interior spaces evolved into a contemporary vision with influences of Art Deco. As the villa had a significant amount of fenestration, measures where introduced to passively control the light coming into the living spaces as well as retro-fitting insulation to reduce the villa's power usage. The introverted site shifted the focus towards the careful usage of material, light and landscape.
