Karim Rashid has designed a concept Komb House in Cairo Egypt with spacious 482 sqm for Tarek Nour Communication. Komb House is an ideal shelter that used technology to make traditions, customs and a sense of family or community.
Shell house flippers were prepared by repetition of reclaimed wood. Each set in a slightly different profile to the next making quality, dynamic fluid both outside and inside the house wall. Because the angles and depth, the fins make a play on privacy. Interior of the house consists of four rooms that reflect our core activities: play, eat, sleep and cleanse.
The centre room, inspired by Islamic terrace, features an oasis with skylights and plunge pool center. Ecological ideas entered into the house, such as solar water heating panels, energy efficient appliances, reuse of pluvial and grey water, low energy LED lighting and raised radiant flooring. The house can be easily dismantled and materials such as wood, metal, glass, and solar panels can be reused. [Via]
