Villa Sager, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia
It's a family house in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. The building is composed of two L-shaped bodies articulated around a courtyard regulating vertical and horizontal circulation.
The space composition of the house is articulated around the division man/women.
The symmetrical principal facade is reserved to the men; the asymmetrical side facade is reserved to the women. The project interpreted some of the elements of the traditional local architecture like the natural stone and the openings: generous glazed openings or small windows, protected by the clusters.
