The private house will be constructed in Seeb, a seaside suburb of Muscat. The 11.000 s.m. plot is inside a palm forest zone. The basic parameters of the design was the climate of the area with the high temperatures, and the social and cultural parameters of the islamic residential program.

The synthesis of the project was based on the transform of the parameters that provide privacy in the typical islamic house, so that the result would be a contemporary dynamic house. The climate adopting to the extreme parameters was archived with energy efficient technologies, with the saving and reuse of the rain water during the monsoons period and by the network of artificial lakes that surround the building and run through the ground floor.


Pavlos Chatziangelidis founded 314 architecture studio in 2004. He studied civil engineering in National Technical University of Athens 1996-2002 and architecture engineering in The University of Thessaly 2006-2012. In 2004 he acquired a Master of Arts degree in design. The name 314 of the studio, is inspired from the mathematic symbol π = 3,14 that is used to count the area of the circle. This reference is related to the philosophical dimension of the concept of the circle. The basic characteristic of his design beside the ecological, social and programmatic dimensions of the project, is the creation of a shell that urges the user to experience an abstraction.
