The design of this house is a coexistence, offering a duality that seems contradictory: while the architecture achieves the need for enclosure and privacy, it also allows its inhabitants to live openly within nature.
The design strategy places two longitudinal volumes facing towards one another, but with physical separation; thus, the design positions them in a direct conversation, enlivening the space in-between them.
Further, by applying material transparencies to sliding doors and glass walls, and by populating the exterior landscape with abundant trees and vegetation, the space in-between the two volumes is defined as a "park". As the inhabitants can move freely between inside and outside, the entire ground floor is experienced as a single space that is embedded within nature. Further, the flexibility of the architectural spaces allows for mediation of natural light and regulation of interior temperatures, an essential contextual aspect of the desert climate.
