2Q 257

Al Qurum, Sultanate of Oman

“2Q 257” volume is stretched inward to introduce terraces.  The ground floor is smaller than the rest of the floors to allow garden views and leave covered passages and terraces which makes the villa look like it is floating. The roof edges are distorted to allow access to the views.

Pedestrian access is granted from the upper boundary of the road, through sidewalks and crossways.
