The entrance landscape has a 2-meter waterfall with a fire pit in front of it, while the path to the pool area and entertainment space provides abundance of greenery and trees, with stepping stones passing through. The greenery spans to the outer side of the gate, where small bushes are planted to add greenery to the look from the outside.

Dabouq Private Villa A design for a private villa in Dabouq, Jordan. The client requested a modern approach, but with security screens on every window in the building, Traditional windows were placed, but adapted to the modern context of the massing and the interior design. Status: Completed


34 Professional Works

I took part in the supervision on the construction of the project, where I made sure that the design is implemented on site with minimal variation, especially with significant design elements like the skylight that carries sunlight to the ground and first floor, and the 7-meter waterfall that was important to compensate for the level difference that existed on site. Some changes were compulsory due to site conditions or aesthetics.

Arab Community College Main Gate and Landscape As part of the design team, my work included visualization of the conceptual design of the gate, analysis of the loads that affect the design, and meeting with the client to discuss their points of view and the proposals that were to be developed. My responsibilities also included daily supervision of site works and inspection of the compliance of the built masses with the design.

Eroded Arteries 39

Eroded Arteries A workshop Held by Architectural Association School of Architecture in September 2014 ‘Eroded Arteries’ is the regeneration of the natural eroded patterns at the architectural scale. It takes its inspiration from the rock erosions at the Wadi Rum and translates that into architecture. Erosive forms are generated parametrically using variety of external influence including the wind and the sun.


40 Eroded Arteries

Sections are made using Python Scripts, so that spaces are formed as the plane gets close to certain control points, and are deformed as it gets away from them. Detailing the surface was done using Grasshopper, with an adaptive pattern becoming dense between the functional areas and gradually vanishing as it gets further from the spaces, thus letting as much natural light enter the functional zones of the site, while providing shade to gathering areas.


Sports Center 41

Sports Center The structural model shows the main elements for supporting the building, in addition to the space frame of connected trusses. It also shows the post and beam method used as the skeleton of the rooms on the sides of the multipurpose hall. The section in the multipurpose hall shows the exposure of the structural elements to the user. The space frame structure provides large spans without the use of posts, this structure is further supported by the two large steel slanted posts and the central structural element.
