Our proposal interprets Arabic culture and Arabic architectural elements in a contemporary way. The design is based on a geometry with three wings forming a semi-public inner courtyard, which under the climatic conditions on-site provides an optimal space program. Through intelligent use of semi-solid walls, which are inspired by Arabic ornaments and reinterpreted through parametric design, the structure playfully interacts with air, light, and shadow and, at the same time, defines private, public and hybrid spaces.
