Spain and Kuwait-based AGi Architects has designed this 'simplexcity' family house in Kuwait.
'To adapt to the desert climate, the distances between the built volumes are minimal, resulting in shaded spaces between houses. But these spaces, that work well as temperature regulators, result in facades with little privacy and limited views,' explain the architects, who aimed for a design that would allow both seclusion and some long views out at the same time. 'Given these circumstances, our focus was to design a home that expresses the clients' needs, clearly marking the buffers and transitions that any guest could understand.'
The result is a house that look contemporary from the street, but with passages and hidden spaces within- giving the house its name, the Secret House.
