Situated in Jal’ad, the Halawa Farmhouse exhibits a modern, minimal, and environmentally-friendly building that is in complete harmony with its natural topography.
Acting as one composition, the house, outdoor pool, and terraces reveal a composed harmony. The facades borrow stone cut from the site itself, theatrically blending into the natural and unique fabric while developing an environmentally-friendly trend. Plastered concrete is employed, its color blending with the surrounding nature.
One of the most important design decisions was the house’s orientation. The house shares a direct connection with nature through the use of over sized windows that welcome forest views into the serene interior. The narrow entrance of the house opens up to the spacious open-plan layout of the interior. The layout expresses a special relationship that is simple and direct.
