From Monotony to Diversity    A Residential Development in the State of Kuwait

Kuwait City 29.33° N 48.00° E

This project explores alternatives to the sealed airconditioned environment by addressing the complexity of Kuwait City’s climate identifying architectural and environmental design potential in each season focusing on the dynamic relationships inherent in the daily and seasonal cycles. Earth-coupling and simple passive strategies that encourage intuitive occupant behaviour have been shown by simulation to help attune living spaces to the natural rhythms providing environmental performance as well as  diversity in place of high energy consumption and monotony.­
