Mahboula district is a promising developing area of Kuwait. We made a point of creating a pragmatic and rational model of the building. Our goal was to ensure a compact footprint together with maximum sightlines, sun control and privacy of residential areas. In order to solve these tasks we adopted a concept of an opening flower whose petals show the view over the gulf and also protect residential areas from the sun and potential neighbors. Taking into account the location of the plot, the vertical ribs on the southern facade are different from those in the north, making sure that the southern part receives more intensive sun protection. All the functional areas are organized around the compact core with vertical communications, which connect the building with the two-tier underground parking. Connecting two streets, the linear lobby adjoins technical and commercial facilities. The compact footprint of the building leaves enough space for a garden. The ribs overlooking the gulf help to create an appealing image of the apartment building.
