Called Star House, the side of the house facing the beach has
floor to ceiling windows, affording panoramic views of the sea.

The design was initially for three detached houses, but the
client decided on a single residence with two bungalows and a
boathouse.

The following information is from the architects:

Project Description
Nestled into the landscape, this beach house blends with the
natural topography of the coastline of Kuwait. It slowly unfolds
itself to the visitor, as it is approached from the desert.

Upon entry, one gets glimpses of the sea whilst going down to
the public space of the chalet. On this lower level, the house
extends into the landscape and the sea, accentuated by an
infinity pool in the garden.

The private side of the house, 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 building,
organizes the different flows of family, friends and guests.

The organizational and formal structure of the beach house is
dictated by the ability to maximize views to the sea.

The initial design was master planned for three detached
dwellings, each with extensive sea views while simultaneously
achieving privacy from one another.

The client, instead, opted for a single house, two bungalows
and a boathouse, with possible plans for expansion in the future.
