Firm of Joaquín Pérez-Goicoechea MArch ’02 and Nasser B. Abulhasan MArch ’02, DDes ’07 Completes Iconic Residence in Kuwait
AGi architects, the firm founded by Joaquín Pérez-Goicoechea MArch ’02 and Nasser B. Abulhasan MArch ’02, DDes ’07, has completed Rock House, a single-family home located in Abdulla Al-Salem, Kuwait. At the client’s request, the residence’s design serves two purposes: providing maximum privacy to its inhabitants while also brining an iconic new structure to the neighborhood. “The building’s structure is composed of reinforced concrete formed similarly to a folded origami, and the structure rotates around itself creating a central courtyard from which all the spaces in the house are turned towards,” states the project brief.
