Comments Off on Residential Palace for an extended family tackles Saudi’s harsh desert environment

The residence brings three different dwellings for all members of the family under the same roof. The design offers a modern interpretation of the way homes were traditionally built in desert areas. Optimal sun exposure , ventilation and generous views of the surroundings were some of the client’s main imperatives.

In terms of materials, there is a slight difference between interior and exterior finishings. Natural stone dominates the entire property and varies from sandy, dark colors to polished, warm tones. + AIM Studio Via World Architecture News

By gifting his wife, Suzy Amis Cameron, a “bunch” of five solar arrays shaped like giant flowers for her MUSE School in southern California, he not only demonstrated his love for her, but his love for the planet as well. Cameron designed the solar arrays himself over the course of three years. Just like sunflowers, they pivot to face the moving sun to maximize the solar energy they can absorb each day.
