madrid and kuwait city-based practice AGi architects have sent us images of their recently completed ‘S cube chalet’,
a structure comprised of three beach residences in kuwait. inhabited by members of the same family, the configuration allows
privacy to the three individual familial units with the ability to enjoy the environment from their youth. intertwined, the dwellings
maintain views to the sea from terraces as well as direct access to a yard and garden. the plot has been divided in half
and a pair separate structures for two of the homes have been positioned adjacent to each other with mirrored plans.
a central stairway is placed between them, leading to the third on the first level.

each family has personal outdoor areas bordering the garden or a rooftop terrace. the northern elevation frames views towards
the water while the southern elevation is windowless to minimize exposure to the sun.
