Helal New Moon Residence was Designed by Ehrlich Architects. The architects have transformed the desert site into an oasis with pool and landscaping. This 35.000-square foot building is designed with Islamic Architectural Style. The obvious form is the canopy which forms a crescent moon, the symbol of new life that tops the minarets of Islam. Some of the building elements were chosen specifically for the desert environment. A pool that flows indoor and provides cooling has been built around the front fae. A moucharabie, the traditional lattice sunscreen filters direct sun. The present of the building as an oasis is also justified with gardens with fountains which are supplied with ample desalinated waters and shady courtyards. The executive architect for this project was Godwin Austen Johnson.
Building a house on a rocky terrain can be a real challenge. It’s not simple to fit building design requirements from clients with space and terrain’s shape available. But the architects/designers from Jarmund / Vigsnæs AS Architects MNAL have done more. They built the house more than just to blend with the surrounding terrain ( Which is dominated by rocks ), but also to take some design advantages from it. Look at how they built the foundation of the house. The stone stairs didn't change the original rocks to much. Or, did they specifically build the stair on that very place where the stone’s terrain is down to the ocean?. You can also see the shapes, colors and materials of the house itself that represent its nature. For the small pool in front of the house, no one will mistakenly say that it's part of the ocean. But definitely the pool blends very well with the ocean. This house is located on the coast of Vestfold in the southern part of Norway. The house was built for vacation house and this new construction itself replaced an older one. Well, whatever they have done, they have done it very well.
