‘house at giza’ goes beyond the ordinary boxed plan

 

house at giza, egypttakes shape as a giant stone sculpture that escapes the typical boxed blueprint. designed by new cairo-based badie architects, the project adopts a dynamic appearance that is informed by natural forms, welcoming the human habitation within. for this project, the design team utilized the advancements of computerization, avoiding any parallel line to form a series of voids and solids. this wild visual vocabulary creates a symbiosis between the abode and its surrounding environment, all the while seeking to bring its residents closer to nature. 

 

‘nature is our relief. it empowers us to follow its flows, be flexible, adaptable and celebrate the spirit of youthfulness. by blending the edge between the human habitat and the natural world, and stripping it from the past, present or future ties, we are creating a sympathetic and well-integrated structure with its surroundings to be part of a unified world.’badie architects twists and bends organic-shaped stone house at giza, egypt all images by badie architects 

 

 

a structure devoid of parallel lines 

 

in an attempt to depict the innate connection with the natural world, the final design emerges as a cave-like structure, utilizing unrepeatable and unparalleled lines. avoiding mimicking nature, the design team simply seeks to form a dialogue between the human-made and the natural world. and that is achieved by using wild visual vocabulary. as the architects mention, they get immersed into the randomness of nature, in a dance between reality and dream. ‘this may appear as some form of notorious abandonment of order, but in fact it’s about submitting to the random flow of nature, letting go of artificial constraints, and joining its graceful dance of forms in a motion that lies somewhere between realism and idealism.’

 

for this project, the design team not only was based on innovative technologies but also on a system design that includes the artful integration of the structure with the rest of the social and material world.badie architects twists and bends organic-shaped stone house at giza, egypt
