Riffa Views, Bahrain 2015


A spatially-flipped concept "interning outside". 

The design starts with a streetscape taking us through a traditional Bahraini alley with its elements and urban features: The baker (khabbaz), Juice shop, and doors to houses with traces of life spilling onto the alley (satellite dish, Aerial, water tank tank, clothes line on the roof,...)

The design extends to engage an extra sense, with a soundtrack of alley noise during the day, and another one with night atmosphere...
