Al Wafrah Chalet is a summer house built as an extension for the Al Wafra farm, a family getaway including residential houses, palm fields, and multiple pools. The main elevation of Al Wafrah Chalet borrows the curvy shape of the existing circular project, creating a welcoming entrance and a vast view towards the landscape.
Inside, the geometry of the house is clean and simple, two large arches outline the reception area. The sitting room facing the palm field, can be lived as both a family and social space, once receiving guests. The color palette was chosen to provide the adequate mood for each angle; the bright white walls illuminating the space, and the gray walls at the entrance dimmed to enjoy the scenery.
Inspired by the fresh Mediterranean architecture, the kitchen is defined by wood beams in the ceiling, and storage niches with wood cabinets. A quartz bar separates the kitchen from the dining room, which features a white marble table that seats 6 diners. In addition, a lighted gap separates the white walls from the ceiling, to add an airy sensation to the house.
In the upper floor, the terrace is converted to multiple gathering spaces; a shaded dining section, an interactive sitting lounge and an elevated tub spot, all overlooking the surrounding garden.
