From the architect: “Khamsa”, the eye in the hand, recognized as a sign of protection is the symbol we played with in the design process.Save this picture!© Régis L’hostisThe project concept revolves around the notion of connexion and transition, from inner to outer, from light to shadow, from public to private, from reflection to absorbtion, from dry to wet ,from social to intimate.Save this picture!© Régis L’hostisEarth construction – Off-the-grid–hybrid solar and wind power – Vaulted earth brick cellar – Natural (plant filtered) pool, jacuzzi and pond. The construction uses compressed earth bricks stabilized with 8% portland cement for the main house and poured earth for outbuildings. The purposely blind facade incorporates opaque glass for privacy and allows visitors once inside to discover the interior and back exterior panorama.Save this picture!© Régis L’hostisThe back of the house takes advantage of a north facing window wall, maximizing views of the pond, pool and jaccuzi as well as the existing landscape of tropical trees and vegetation on the property. This living area provides a connection to nature and offers the owner a private oasis.Save this picture!© Régis L’hostisWe created a seamless interior-exterior transition to maximize light and natural views. Each room features glass walls which open to a unique secluded landscape. While the public gathering spaces rely on open volume, the two bedroom suites have been scaled down to bring a more intimate ambiance.Save this picture!© Régis L’hostisThe open floor plan relies on volume and simplistic spaces with an unobstructed flow. The intentional16″ high dropped ceilings allow for natural air ventilation and insulation in addition to a dramatic perspective.Save this picture!© Régis L’hostisBoth the swimming pool and jacuzzi are naturally filtered by an adjacent aquatic plant zone, eliminating the need for chemical additives. The large surface area offers a cooling micro-climate.Save this picture!Floor PlanOur objective was to create an ecological living experience according to the client’s needs that reflects the input, creativity and talents of each participant while also respecting local resources and customs. We strive to create beauty through informed design for thoughtful living.Save this picture!© Régis L’hostisProject gallerySee allShow lessPhotographic Exhibition Highlights The Relationship Between Brick And The DutchArchitecture NewsCultural Center at Saint-Germain-lès-Arpajon / Ateliers O-S architectesSelected Projects Share “Khamsa” House / Atelier KoeSave this projectSave”Khamsa” House / Atelier Koe ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/604246/khamsa-house-atelier-koe Clipboard Year:  Photographs Senegal Area:  350 m² Area:  350 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project last_img
