Kuwait-based architecture practice Office 313 has designed an extension that could be used as an entertainment house adjacent to the client's main house.
Named Curvature House, the 500-square-metre house, located in Kuwait, is pointed out by interplay of arches that remove boundaries between interior and exterior and its natural, soft and powder-colored palette.
The new house is detached from the main house and is designed to meet the client's entertainment and extra activities.
"The essence of this project lies behind the interplay of extremes that exist within," said Office 313. The architects' strategy was to design a space that immerses its visitors in an environment that hosts an interplay of light and dark.
They wanted to link the indoor to the outdoor, and to regulate the climate as well as provide the guests with a harmonious living space.
The architects used water features, landscaping, and operable shading devices to help regulate the arid climate in the project. The project’s material palette consists of white-cast concrete, terrazzo, and natural stone. The resulting look is one of unity, coherence, and luxury.
