Gama Issa outland is the explosion of the traditional house. What the clients wanted was carefully studied and then spread in independent boxes: bedrooms, kitchen, dining room, living room, home theater, atelier, gym, guest rooms, parking place and workers house, all traditional functions. Everything is connected but can still exist independently. Being placed randomly, the senses of distances and proximity between each other can vary, without having a clear hierarchy.

The most private boxes: bedrooms, kitchen and living rooms, are joined by the same roof. A white curved form that configures terraces and protect against the rain and the excesses of light. This roof is the shelter itself, a cave with no walls. Being in the country side, with lots of free space and a peaceful landscape, is the perfect opportunity for urban contemporary freaks to experience life without boundaries between inside and out. The circulation is free and never linear. One can jump from the bedroom to the kitchen and then to the atelier without passing through a formal living room, after all, we can live differently, and more creatively, having free spaces to explore.

The intention is to create a new dimension for the interstitial spaces, to think of the empty spaces as a part of the home. This project is an attempt to use architecture to instigate the life it contains but also to be an open system that can be influenced by the life it holds. The whole of architecture here is to induce new relationships amongst people, to challenge our ways of dwelling the house and explore the infinite possibilities of space.
