Project idea

A housing project for a Dubai's newly constructing district - Culture Village. The volumes were created as a sum/difference of two ellipses while getting compact shape in balanced forms. Tension and communication can be felt. Horizontal and vertical perspective have been supported by water skylights and openings in buildings masses. The result is an opennes to surroundings and a bay. Chosen shapes allowed to design semi-public spaces and simple access to water level. The project is focused on effective use of energies, passive cooling and water management.
