This farmhouse in Gulberg Green was conceived as the perfect amalgamation of Moroccan and Mediterranean aesthetics with local sensibilities and climate.
Drawing on a thorough study of the sun path, the volumes form an inward-looking huddle around the cosy pool courtyard. The views are granted due importance by large windows, oriented towards the vast gardens in the rear of the house.
The central axis dividing the public from private in both internal spaces and external facades, runs diagonally from North to South.
External finishes are light beige sandstone, gutka brick which adds texture through the laying pattern – both on solid walls and as see-through mesh, and bright Moroccan blue on intricate metal features; all the while retaining a modern look through minimalist volume treatment and liberal use of glass in windows and railings.
Rich accents of colour from the Mediterranean palette are introduced as a last finish and feature element in carefully crafted tilework for the six water features around and in the house.
Internally, a minimal contemporary aesthetic is strictly followed with white marble and accents of gold. The only exception here is the continuing mosaic tilework in shades of blue and green found externally and an Islamic arch-inspired drawing cum dining room with adjacent vaulted hallway.
This building is fully equipped with an HVAC system while at the same time ensuring connectivity with the outdoors and spaces to appreciate the natural environment, landscape and climate.
