This two story villa in Basra, Iraq is quite an architectural marvel. The client has some very specific requests, including the dimensions of the room and the visuals of the exterior. The CAS team rose to the challenge by delivering a modern contemporary style villa that features quite an attractive elevation. With a focus on efficiency and practicality along with aesthetics, the materials for the elevation were chosen to be modern and suitable within the hot and sunny climatic context of the city. Furthermore, narrow windows were designed with regards to the exterior design in order to emulate a properly modern aesthetic.
