Star House in Bnaider, Kuwait by AGi architects

Wednesday, November 13th, 2013

Article source: AGi architects 

Nestled into the landscape, this beach house blends with the natural topography of the coastline of Kuwait. It slowly unfolds itself to the visitor, as it is approached from the desert.

Upon entry, one gets glimpses of the sea whilst going down to the public space of the chalet. On this lower level, the house extends into the landscape and the sea, accentuated by an infinity pool in the garden. The private side of the house, located at the entry level, is concealed from the visitors by a bamboo wall. Bedrooms and private living spaces remain isolated from daily activities. A three-way stair, placed at the center of building, organizes the different flows of family, friends and guests.

Article source: AGi architects

Urban acupuncture. To intervene in territory the minimum, yet sufficiently as to improve the deficiencies found. This is how AGi architects has faced this extension of a built dwelling; a building that, appropriating of part of a public and residual space, managed to generate a a house that improves the life of its occupants as well as the life of the inhabitants of the main dwelling.
Parting from the base of an existing staircase, a warehouse and a void, an evolving structure that enhances internal spaces and dignifies open space is generated, conferring a new scale.

The Exhibition Hall in Kuwait City, Kuwait by OMA

Saturday, March 16th, 2013

Article source: OMA

In the last decades, the increasing presence of brands within department stores has eroded the store’s capacity to define its own identity. Department stores have become characterless landlords of a chaotic rabble of brands, cancelling each other out through their constant declarations of uniqueness. The Exhibition Hall, a new development within Kuwait City’s 360Mall, tries to create a new paradigm that will redefine the relation between department stores and brands by letting them participate in an explicit cultural concept.
