AGi architects: S cube chalet

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.

    Pretty sure communal living is the opposite of pretentious. The group of clients told the architect they had a small site and wanted to fit 3 families on it. This tells you that these people are minimizing their impact on unused land by coming up with a home to comfortably house 3 families with privacy from the others. This says a lot to me.

    unpretentious
  • agree…. its not a house that you want to live in

    ainat
  • bad and pretentious. This house doesnt tell my anything…neither from the architect or client. anonimous

    boring
