In pictures: Box House in Kuwait by local architect

Kuwaiti architecture studio Massive Order has recently completed a contemporary home named Box House in Rawoda, Kuwait.

The house consists of a trio of various homes that are organised around small glazed terraces to accommodate three families.

“The idea is to give each family a unique and private spatial experience, hence the program was divided volumetrically and each volume overlooks a private courtyard,” said a statement by Massive Order.

From the outside, the house appears to be a giant slab of stone, as few windows are set in recesses from behind–this was done to ensure the privacy of the families inside. Behind the front wall are the many courtyards and terraces that give the space its unique shape.
