COURTYARD HOUSE, MUSCAT
Located within an up-and-coming neighbourhood of Muscat, this residential family villa provides a modern solution to the complex accommodation requirements of an extended family. Reinterpreting the traditional courtyard house, the building seamlessly fuses a contemporary aesthetic with the practical requirements of modern living to provide open-plan spaces with the flexibility to control privacy when required. The building’s composition takes advantage of the site’s topography and creates a series of cascading outdoor spaces culminating in a sunken rear garden at lower ground level.
