*테라스가 있는 5 채의 하얀 주택 -[Areia Houses, five clean-lined white houses at the Khiran Resort]

Associated Architects Partnership은 쿠웨이트 남부의 Khiran 리조트 개발에서 운하가 내려다 보이는 깨끗한 백색 주택의 테라스를 만들었다. 수영장 가장자리의 테라스와 수영장으로 구분되는 Areia Houses는 사막에서 굴착되어 운행되는 200킬로미터 길이의 운하 구간과 나란히 만들어졌다. 5개의 주택은 물의 가장자리를 따라 일렬로 배열되어 있으며 각각은 일련의 단순한 흰색 상자로 구성되어 일관된 테라스를 형성한다.

 

Associated Architects Partnership has created a terrace of five clean-lined white houses overlooking a canal at the Khiran Resort development, in southern Kuwait.

The Areia Houses, which are differentiated by poolside terraces and swimming pools, stand alongside a section of the 200 kilometres of canals that have been excavated from the desert to create the resort.

The five residences are arranged in a row along the water's edge, and each comprise a series of simple white boxes that combine to form a coherent terrace.

"From an early stage, the idea was to develop a sense of unity, using the same architectural language of simple plane geometry, as well as the same basic concept and programmatic organisation," the architects explained.


"The result is a contemporary image of continuity and proportion, where slight harmonious variations guarantee complexity and diversity to this set of houses."

Each building features a similar layout intended to reference traditional Kuwaiti architecture, with the main living spaces on the ground floor opening onto a series of patios and decks.

The upper storeys accommodate a collection of bedrooms enveloped by walls that are perforated in places to allow light to enter and provide views out while maintaining privacy for the occupants.

Open staircases ascend to rooftop terraces offering a panoramic view across the water and the surrounding neighbourhood.

These spaces can be furnished to create pleasant environments for lounging in the evenings when the heat of the day has dissipated.
