When a new building is attached to an old building, there has to be harmony between the new and old building so they do not look apart. This was the challenge we faced in this guest house exterior design.
The new building had to have an outstanding design despite its harmony with the old building.
We put tall windows and a full glass balcony which would give a great view of the river flowing near the home. Natural materials were used all throughout the home. Natural stones were used in the building in two colors including cream and brown which give the building a warm look.
The lighting of the guest house exterior design also provides a remarkable view at night and lights up the Basra neighborhood where lots of residents go for relaxation.
