The home’s design is based on the concept of “plowing” as a supplement to the conceptual design phase of the project. Plowing refers to the arranged intervention in a land compound, dividing the area into strips or sowing areas. As it applies to this design, those areas, which are sub-spaces of the plot, appear in the villa in the configuration of different areas, with the rhythms of plowing producing the transitions between the public and the private spaces.
The spaces create an organized longitudinal system for the flow and movement of the inhabitants within the home.
The design reflects the existing topography which is based on a long and narrow sloped lot measuring half an acre. The home connects two separate single “houses” to serve distinct functions for the parents, children, parking, guest accommodation, and kitchen.
Connecting the two separate living spaces was done via a “shed” — a light structure that combines glass, wood, and steel and serves the dining and sleeping accommodation.
The outdoor area incorporates a front garden with an adjacent ramp to the parking area and the guest footpath and between the back garden which includes a swimming pool, gathering areas, and different points of view to the rear plot.
