Using natural materials [5] such as wood, stone, and rock partitions (in addition to less-friendly concrete), the designers managed to strike a balance between luxury and simplicity with these rectangular villas. Local flora grows unhindered in the public spaces, around the pool, and at the outdoor restaurant, and rainwater is harvested [6] in order to ensure this precious resource is used intelligently.
