Kanoo Building
Manamah, Bahrain
The center of the six-storey apartment building is occupied by an open courtyard placed on the second floor, creating an internal volume which enhances cross-ventilation throughout the structure. The service areas of the flats overlook the courtyard, while the living rooms and bedrooms open onto the streets. Openings are protected from the sun by deep-set balconies on the external facades and by wooden mashrabiyyas" on the courtyard side. These introduce an element of variety to the overall composition
