Marissa Housing, at Dhahran City, Saudi Arabia, by Architecture Dialogue

Marissa Housing by Architecture Dialogue
The master planning of the Marissa Housing responds to the local climatic, social and sustainability needs to create a contextually appropriate architecture. The contemporary Islamic style architecture responds to the brief by providing an introverted planning that is designed around a central landscaped courtyard. The residential units are enclosing a shaded and landscaped courtyard that is optimally shaded and densely planted as an oasis amidst the city

No place like home
To put the feet up and look out to see
The rising or the setting sun
To have dinner with the moon that has risen
No place like home
To see green change colour
To sense the seasons, pass by
To savour flower, scent and changing colours
No place like home
For morning walks and moments of solemn refection
Yet know that you are not alone
And that a friendly smile beckons just around the corner
No place like home
For a cup of tea
On the deck with butterflies and bees
Offering a moment of contentment and reflection
No place like home
For feeling the cool breeze
Hearing it pass through the peep holes of destiny
Seeing it gently moving past the Palm tree
No place like home
To be grounded in the senses
Yet be connected to the eternal bliss
A beautiful life, waiting to be lived!

Each of the unit has proximately positioned parking, which allows residents to park close to the house for ease.
