Teahouses: a series of design tryouts where the building acts as an attempt to
assess ideas, techniques and materials. Without the need for a client to commend
the end result, it is a rich ground to put to test what I feel about architecture and

to push the boundries of this experience farther. The city of
Jeddah is where all these Teahouses are presumably located.-------------------------------------------------------------------Teahouse II: The idea is to explore the inside-outside relation and the threshold in between. The threshold, the frontal wall characterized with the
hanging masses inspired from Roshans of old Jeddah, is embracing the outdoor space in front and yet the spatial continuity between the inside and the outside is well defined.



Teahouse II by Hadi Baghlaf in Saudi Arabia won the WA Award Cycle 5. Please find below the WA Award poster for this project.
