g house option 2007
dubai, united arab emirates

A large and muted desert house laid out around lush inner courtyards and inserted in the bare sand dunes of Dubai’s suburbs. Roofs are landscaped with indigenous species, and the sunlight is filtered through intricate stone lattices that keep most of the heat out. One enters from above and steps down the stepped terraces to the lower living level where a palm tree grove shades the pool and most of the garden.
