Description: Located in the southern desert of the Emirate of Sharjah, this300 square meters - one floor house - is designed as a modest retreat from the increasingly busy and congested living urban areas of Sharjah City. The project is characterized by its repetitive rough stone-faced walls holding flat concrete slabs in between, and glazed facades overlooking a terraced pool garden extending along the rear side of the site, while the front side includes a generous landscaped drop off area. The house is divided into two sides, one for the living/dining areas together with the kitchen and services, and the other for bedrooms, separated by a central entrance hall facing the pool area and rear garden and desert beyond.
