A perfect circle, this live-work concept for a Saudi Arabian jewellery artist sits within the artist’s family estate, offering privacy and sanctuary through its elemental shape. A ring wall punctuated by a single narrow opening creates a cocoon, bisected within by a glass-enclosed level that contains the residence’s functional spaces: kitchen, atelier, bedroom. The concrete structure includes a secluded rear patio with a solitary planted tree, and a water feature carved into the floor, evoking the placid surface of a lake disrupted by a drop of rain. mz‑architects.com
