Architecture Studio have designed Seascape Villas in Aqaba, Jordan for Madaen Al Aqaba.
The Seascape Villas project constitutes one of the first urban interventions in this very unique context, a landscape dominated by mountains and sea.
The Seascape Villas of Aqaba is a very contextual project. The idea was to offer as much as possible the sea view. The site is shaped into a series of longitudinal gardens escalated in different levels, following the natural slope of the existing site. We developed 3 types of villas from 191 sqm to 346 sqm. The entire villas have two levels and one basement. All inhabitants of the 74 villas will have a unique sea view. The more luxurious villas, type 2 and 3, will also have a direct sea view from ground floor and the garden.
The concept of privacy is very central and the result is a series of spaces protected by the minerals screens and vegetation that divides two plots and creates a barrier in the way of northcoming wind.
The concept of dividing walls called “Mineral screen” will maintain the independence of each villa view on the Red Sea and create a dynamic relationship between the building and its surroundings.
