The design bases an the dialogue of Arabian culture and architecture with modern Language. We have discussed these aspects to a result, that gives consideration even to the specific climatic conditions. The most important theme in Arabian architecture is the arrangement of public, semi-public, semi-private and private areas. A big wish for privacy
traditionally results in closing the building to the public. Merely a wall is presented to the neighbourhood.
Our aim was to give the building an outside view without disturbing privacy inside.
Decoded ground offers the theme for the golf house. It is inspired by the Arabian art of calligraphy and weaving. The building is developed out of the landscape and gives a direct reference from the golf court to the interior. So the design of the golf villa refers to traditional art and habits in connection with the specific topographic situation.
