The Dead Sea is about 50 km to the West of Amman. On our way we can go through Al Zara district which is famous for it's hot springs and waterfalls, it is the center where the Ma'in hot springs flow into the dead sea, that's why it is richer in mineral content than most other sources, these mineral waters have been renowned for their therapeutic qualities since many years. Two main hot springs pass through our land, the temperature of the water reaches 44.8 Celsius and you can see the steam fuming over the streams of water.
The social area was designed, to the south, a free standing wall that separates the service area from the living room and the dining area. The dining table and the bar area was designed above an indoor water feature, the table which ismade of an old tree stem stands on the water feature and sculpturally penetrates the fixed glass panel to form the outdoor dining and BBQ area sided by an overflowing swimming pool with a wooden platform around, and the duo-sided fireplace which can be experienced from the inside-out, added a special quality to the space.
Grey Travertine stone was chosen as an outer skin of the house, as it shows it's ability to resist humidity and the weather conditions. While designing the hard landscape, the steep contour on the site allowed us to create the natural overflow for the swimming pool and the Jacuzzi’s sculptural rock. For the soft landscape, the major evergreen climber here was the Bougainvillea.
