Star House (Beach House) by AGi architects
2011 - 2012, Golden A' Architecture, Building and Structure Design Award Winner
Natural Environment; Geological Structures
Nestled into the landscape, this beach house blends with the natural topography of the coastline of Kuwait. Approaching from the desert, it slowly begins to unfold to the visitor. The formal structure of the house is designed to maximize views to the sea. Upon entry, one catches a glimpse of the sea whilst descending into the public space. On this lower level, the chalet extends into the landscape and the sea, accentuated by an infinity pool and surrounded by a garden. The private side, located at the entry level, is concealed from the visitors by a bamboo wall. Bedrooms and private living spaces remain isolated from daily activities. A three-way stair, placed at the center of the building, organizes the different flows of family, friends and guests.
Design Challenges
The challenge was to create an impressive villa that has a strong relationship to the inspiring landscape. The building is conceived as a high quality private villa that is able to accommodate a large number of guests without interfering with everyday family functions.
Production Technology
From an engineering point of view, the Star House Beach House by AGi architects is a good example of a highly-developed project.
