AGi Architects has designed a private house in Kuwait, lined with stone and with its many facets resembling an origami figure.

The authors of the project explained that the owner of the house wanted the building to be remarkable and at the same time ensure the complete privacy of the family living in it.

The building has a small courtyard, also surrounded by corners and edges of the walls. It can be accessed through sliding glass doors. Inside the house there are practically no corridors, in accordance with the traditions of Muslim architecture.

According to the architects, although the size of the dwelling is “less than local standards”, they have functional flexibility: for example, by leaving the sliding doors to the courtyard open, you can combine the space behind them with the pool terrace.
