The idea for this house was to dive back into the history from where Islam originated. The house follows the ideology of Islam, segregating public with private; respecting Nature; Privacy to women and children; Simple design; no superiority portray; simple aesthetics and protection from the outside world; along with reflecting cultural Architecture elements of old times including Mashrabiyyas, qa'ah, Musallah, Majaz, Mulqafs and courtyard in a modern, contemporary way.
The spaces strictly segregate themselves into 2 zones, public and private, and aims to provide a healthy life to the women and children residing inside the residence. Their emotional, functional, and social needs are what drives the design of this house. The central courtyard acts as a hook for the house around which all the daily functions of the house revolve. This courtyard not only promotes Passive cooling and greatly reduces the load on Electricity but also guides its inhabitants to follow a sustainable approach towards life.

The design in itself has been a journey, from discovering some of the contextual and vernacular Building techniques to meeting undermined local craftsmen.

But alongside also complement the modern Philosophy of minimalism and simplicity in design.
