The owner wanted his villa to be designed and built with traditional Islamic, Damascene style in specific, which usually have the whole property built around an opened patio in the center. He also wanted the 3 floors, the ground, first and second, to have totally different interior design styles.
We decided the styles as follows:
We started with building the patio as a standalone cuboid in the middle of the property, then built the rest of the house around it. We used traditional stones for wallcovering (from inside and out) to match the traditional Islamic style, link the 3 floors together, and to give a sense of direction while walking inside any floor. Whenever and wherever you see the stones wall, you know it’s the wall overlooking the patio.
The Sculpture (Masterpiece):
We designed an ultra-modern sculpture descending from a bridge in the second floor (with ultra-modern interior) into the ground floor (with the traditional interior) landing on a sitting area overlooking a small pond of water. As per the client, he loved the sculpture with the sitting area and it became a kind of sanctuary to his friends!
The whole furniture was sourced from Roche Bobois as requested by the client. We took advantage of the brand’s Le Mah Jong collection of ground seating to link between the floors’ interior and the exterior.
