Coastal Tent House in Al Khiran

Inhabitants of the Arabian Peninsula have a long-standing tradition of leaving the cities on holidays often traveling to the seaside or to the desert to set up temporary infrastructures and spend quality time with their families.

The Tent House conceptually recreates this idea of a family gathering under a lightweight and discrete shelter structure, symbolizing the importance of shade in the hot desert climate.

This five-house complex shares a common folded concrete white roof that provides protection from the sun and wind while permeating light during the day and night. Strategically perforated, the roof filters sunlight into the interior spaces and offers views of the sky through rectangular cuts.

The ground floor exterior spaces serve as social common areas, designed as an oasis with vegetation and gardens surrounding a central water element.

The outdoor gardens culminate in two communal double height shaded spaces that connect the interior of the site to the beach and further accentuating the main façade and proving views for the two internal units to overlook the see.

The Tent residence is designed to maintain privacy from the access road and immediate neighbors while maximizing openness and transparency to the private beach with seafront glazed facades and garden terraces.

The Tent residence simultaneously achieves the status of a desert camp, a beach house and, above all, a gathering place.
