Location: Al Nuzha, Kuwait
Plot Area: 2,000 sqm
Status: Completed in 2010


Standing as a living monument of unity, the Laurel Villas project is made up of four villas brought together through the play on scale, proportion and materiality, and the overlap of design elements from one villa to the other, the building is perceived as one large block of stone that is carved, dented and sculpted to the users’ requirements and their needed spatial functions.


While the Villas’ designs are unlike each other in massing, the facades incorporate common materials to give the houses a similar feel, the exterior cladding materials are a combination of stone, wood and glass keeping the palette simple and concise. The program includes a unique main family Dewaniya, which acts as a public gathering space, distinguished by grander design elements. Kayan’s meticulous design focuses on details in stone cuts and the assimilation of wood on the terraces and door designs.


With these elements applied, Kayan was able to deliver a project that pays tribute to the growing Kuwaiti family and the daily home.
