Private residence in Sulaymany, Irak
The city of Sulaymany is located on a flat area . Close to the city there is a high hill with a clif that faces the city. The plot was located on the top of this cliff.
The client wanted a sight seeing residence opened to the city.
We designed a house in diferent levels. The diferent levels try to integrate the gentle slope of the plot. The house is organized in clear volumes, and horizontals labs. The volume pretends to be suspended. To createt his impression the first floor creates a porche on the ground floor so as to have a shaded area that creates this impression of “suspension”.
At the entrance of the house there is the garage building and the guest’s pavilion, those buildings create an entrance courtyard. From this courty ard the impressive sights are not discovered, we wanted to enphasize the surprise effect of the sightseing when entering into the main building.
