Caryota House designed by DADA & Partners, located in the tranquil landscape of almost three acres, but still offers comfort and luxury for the owner. The project developed in three levels around the Caryota palm courtyard. On the other hand, all other trees retained in their locations and the new building took shape around these. Also, due to the site shared between two other houses already built, the house design in a manner that enjoys the landscape whilst having privacy.

The open roof creates an efficient airflow providing a comfortable micro climate that influences all the spaces of the house. Besides, the formal living, the bar lounge, family area and dining on the ground floor open up to this internal court with largely glazed sliders effectively merging the house and the courtyard, enjoy the feature tree. The entrance to the home is along a cascading water feature that runs the length of the stepped entry court and wraps around the living room that sits elevated over the infinity edge accentuating a floating effect. On the first level are the bedrooms, approached through a gallery that circumferences the internal courtyard with views giving a pivotal anchor to the first floor.

In the lower ground level are the entertainment areas and a spectacular indoor pool. A sunken courtyard forms the focus to both these zones. It acts as a perfect outdoor sit out area to the lower lounge/study. Also, the combination of the white wall, glass, and charcoal grey sheet cladding accentuates the minimalistic architecture that the clients requested for.

The Caryota House Gallery:

Text by the Architects: The residence was to be designed for a couple and two daughters. Which provided generous comfort and luxury, yet sat in the tranquil landscape of almost three acres. Also, as the site is shared between two other houses already built, designing the home in a manner that enjoys the landscape whilst having privacy was paramount. Indeed, a prime component of the design was a soaring fishtail palm tree that stood disregarded behind the old structure where the new house was to be constructed as if demanding to be part of this family. This led to the inclusion of the tree in the new home, hence naming the house ‘CARYOTA’.
