Bashmi Residence
Rifa'a, Bahrain
For this middle class Bahraini family the dream was a house that caters for the needs of their modern lifestyle as much as it reflects their inherited cultural identity. The spatial design evolved from the basic guidelines of the geometric order, reflecting the vision of the morphology of spaces. The introverted direction of activities within the house was the answer which reflected the cultural identity and responded to the locational constraints of the site which is surrounded by neighbours from three sides.
