Functional Elegance - Crafting Comfort and Style

At Pencil Dezign Architects, we understand that true luxury lies in the seamless blend of form and function. Our design extends beyond aesthetics, ensuring that every space within the cinema is optimized for comfort and functionality. The layout facilitates smooth movement, the seating is ergonomically refined, and the acoustics are engineered for perfect sound—every feature is a testament to our commitment to creating spaces that resonate with users on every level.

The Cinematic Journey - A New Chapter in Entertainment Architecture

This cinema is more than a venue; it's a milestone in architectural storytelling, designed to give every movie its grand stage. We invite you to experience the merger of cinematic thrill and architectural beauty, where every visit becomes a journey through the realms of film and design. Pencil Dezign Architects is not just building structures; we're curating experiences that celebrate the spirit of cinema and the art of architecture.

Enhancing Spaces with Technology

In reimagining the interiors, we meticulously studied the existing structure, identifying opportunities to recalibrate spaces to better align with the high-tech vision. Relocating walls and redefining areas, we've crafted an interior that not only accommodates but also amplifies the potential of AI integration. The result is an environment where technological advancements and architectural design converge to foster a sense of ease and innovation.

A Seamless Symbiosis

The seamless fusion of technology and design in the Shaab Medical Center reflects our holistic view of interior architecture. We understand that in a medical setting, the flow and function of space are paramount. Our redesign of the interior goes beyond aesthetics, ensuring that every structural change elevates the center's capability to provide exceptional medical care.

Pencil Dezign's Commitment

Our commitment at Pencil Dezign is to design spaces that advance the human experience. With Shaab Medical Center, we've created an interior that not only meets the demands of modern healthcare but also sets a new standard for medical environments everywhere. It's a place where technology and design come together to heal, comfort, and empower.

An Aquatic Symphony

The centerpiece of this architectural symphony is the stunning swimming pool, designed not merely for recreation but as an extension of the villa’s natural beauty. With the horizon as its boundary, the pool offers an endless embrace of the sea, promising moments of serene indulgence or joyful social gatherings.

Privacy Meets Community

Tailored for dual-family harmony, The Twin Villa is a masterclass in design duality—celebrating shared experiences while honoring individual privacy. Communal spaces are curated for connection, while private quarters provide serene retreats, each with its own unique dialogue with the sea.

Innovation in Every Element

At the heart of The Twin Villa’s design philosophy is the pursuit of innovation, manifest in the air filtration waterfall and the intelligent use of enduring, sustainable materials. It stands as a testament to a lifestyle that cherishes the sophisticated simplicity of modern design, while embracing the rhythms of the natural world.

The Twin Villa is not just a residence; it is a lifestyle statement. A declaration that sustainable sophistication and natural grandeur can coexist, creating a sanctuary where life’s precious moments are cradled by the lap of luxury and the whisper of the waves.

Design with Purpose

The Muse Lounge's layout, envisioned by our team, facilitates seamless transitions between the joy of reading, the delight of live performances, and the contemplation of art. Our design approach marries functionality with splendor, creating an atmosphere that encourages patrons to linger and engage with the space and each other.

A Feast for the Senses

Our commitment to sensory design is evident as the aroma of fresh coffee and the taste of exquisite pastries complement the intellectual and artistic feast. At Pencil Dezign, we believe in creating environments that cater to all senses, curating a holistic experience that captivates and charms.

Celebrated Success

The accolades The Muse Lounge has received from Kuwait's residents and media underscore our capacity to create spaces that resonate with the public. The success of this project is a reflection of our firm's ability to blend innovative design with practical engineering solutions, establishing venues that become cultural landmarks.

Panoramic Views and Natural Elements

One of the standout features of The Gemstone is its expansive glass walls, offering a 360-degree view that captures the beauty of the surroundings. The design includes a natural air filtration system highlighted by a 9-meter indoor waterfall that not only serves as an impressive focal point but also enhances the home's climate.

Luxurious Touches

A central staircase is both a functional element and a statement piece, surrounded by water features that create a serene ambiance. The journey between floors is accompanied by the soothing sound of cascading water, providing a sense of tranquility throughout the home.

Honest Luxury

The Gemstone represents Pencil Dezign's dedication to delivering high-quality interior design that respects tradition while embracing the future. Our design speaks to those looking for an authentic sense of luxury combined with practical, innovative features that make a house feel like a home.

Gardens as Pathways

Movement through Aqua Chalet is an experience in itself, with multiple garden levels that guide residents and guests from one section to another. These landscaped pathways are a celebration of outdoor living, inviting moments of pause to appreciate the beauty of the natural surroundings.

Material Integrity

Understanding the challenges of a seaside location, we've carefully selected materials that stand up to corrosion and saltwater exposure. This ensures the Aqua Chalet's longevity and maintains its beauty against the harsh maritime elements. Our use of sustainable, resilient materials underscores our dedication to eco-friendly design practices.

A Place to Call Home

Aqua Chalet is more than just a housing project—it's a harmonious living experience where every detail is crafted with care and consideration for sustainability and the unique needs of those who will call it home.

Sustainability at the Forefront:

Sustainability is the cornerstone of the Aqua Chalet's design philosophy. Recognizing the unique challenges of its coastal location, we selected materials for their durability against corrosion and saltwater. But beyond resistance to the elements, these materials were chosen for their minimal environmental footprint, ensuring that the project is as kind to the earth as it is to the eyes.

A Study of Nature and Luxury

Our design process included an in-depth analysis of the surrounding sand and environment, allowing us to create a living space that is both a natural extension of the beachfront and a luxurious retreat. The interior circulation is designed to mimic the ebb and flow of the tides, providing an organic sense of movement that leads residents through a journey within their own home.

The Result

The result of our meticulous design process and sustainable approach is an award-winning residence that offers a luxurious, eco-conscious living experience. The Aqua Chalet is a testament to Pencil Dezign's ability to craft spaces that not only meet but exceed the highest standards of design excellence.

We at Pencil Dezign are proud to have our vision recognized on such a prestigious platform and are inspired to continue creating innovative designs that shape the future of sustainable living.

Smart Design for Energy Savings

Our engineering team has meticulously calculated the building's orientation and material selection to ensure a cool interior climate, lessening the dependency on air conditioning. This intelligent design approach is a step towards creating a work environment that is not just comfortable but also cost-effective and kind to the planet.

Reducing Environmental Impact:

This headquarters is more than a workplace; it's a beacon of sustainability. With reduced CO2 emissions and a minimized ecological footprint, it exemplifies how intelligent design can lead to a healthier environment, both indoors and out.

A Workspace Ahead of Its Time

As Pencil Dezign continues to work on this ambitious project, we're crafting a space that will stand as a model for future-oriented businesses looking to harmonize their operations with the principles of sustainability and open collaboration.

Sustainability at the Forefront

True to our ethos, the Sea Waves Chalet is a beacon of sustainable design. The building's orientation and facade are engineered to harness the wind for natural ventilation, reducing the need for artificial climate control. We've chosen materials not only for their aesthetic merit but also for their resilience to the harsh seaside elements, ensuring durability without compromising our ecological values.

Resilience Meets Elegance

Our material selection considers the chalet's direct sea exposure, incorporating corrosion and saltwater-resistant materials to withstand the coastal environment's challenges. This foresight is a hallmark of Pencil Dezign's commitment to creating structures that endure without losing their allure.

The Sea Waves Chalet Experience

With the Sea Waves Chalet, Pencil Dezign has crafted an experience that is as luxurious as it is harmonious with nature. This project stands as a testament to our ability to create architecture that is not only responsive to its environment but also a celebration of it. It's where design, comfort, and sustainability ride the same wave, creating a retreat that's truly in tune with the sea.

Shop, Train, and Strategize

The inclusion of a paddle equipment store within the academy grounds offers convenience and underscores our dedication to supporting athletes’ needs. The offices and meeting rooms are spaces of collaboration and strategy, where pro players and managers can discuss tactics or meet with sponsors in a setting that embodies professionalism and prestige.

Materials That Reflect Quality

Our choice of high-quality materials throughout the building is a reflection of our commitment to durability and aesthetics. We understand that an academy of this caliber is not just a place of training but also a place of inspiration, and our design choices seek to motivate everyone who walks through its doors.

Ocean Paddle Academy: More Than a Venue

At Pencil Dezign, we believe that great design has the power to inspire greatness. The Ocean Paddle Academy is more than a sports venue; it's a cradle for the next generation of paddle sports champions, an academy where health, sportsmanship, and competition converge in a beautifully designed space.

Materials: A Canvas of Quality

Our material palette for The Oasis is a deliberate selection of the finest elements. Black and Calacatta marble grace the interiors with their timeless elegance, complemented by the luster of gold metal details and the artistry of book-matched marble. These materials are not merely decorative but are employed in forms that enhance the villa's natural dynamism.

Elegance in Every Element

The design incorporates Italian Breccia marble and the renowned San Marco paint, bringing a touch of global luxury to the interiors. Each choice is a reflection of our commitment to creating an environment where quality is paramount, and luxury is inherent.

A View Enhanced

The triangular form also serves a functional purpose in guiding circulation within The Oasis. The layout is meticulously planned so that the verdant central space is visible from multiple vantage points, enhancing the quality of the view and the experience of the interior journey.

The Essence of The Oasis

With The Oasis, Pencil Dezign has delivered more than a villa; we have crafted an architectural solution where luxury and contemporary lines converge, creating a space that is not only unique and functional but also a beacon of refined architectural beauty.

Sustainable Materials for Sustainable Living

At Pencil Dezign, we believe that true luxury is living in balance with the environment. The selection of local and sustainable materials for Shihas was an intentional choice to minimize our ecological footprint and blend the structure into its surroundings. Each material was chosen for its ability to complement the forest, ensuring the project not only fits within its environment but also celebrates it.

Respectful Integration

The Shihas project is a testament to our belief that architecture should enhance, not dominate, the natural setting. From the materials to the orientation of the living spaces, every aspect of the design is a tribute to the forest that hosts it, reflecting our respect for the natural lines and contours of the landscape.

The Shihas Experience

Shihas - Natural Lines is more than a project; it's a sanctuary where the lines of man-made design and natural beauty blur, creating a living experience that is both luxurious and grounding. It stands as a beacon of Pencil Dezign's dedication to creating spaces that are in true dialogue with their environment.

Design Elements‍‍

The design of the vertical tower rising with the unique sea and Kuwait view is combined with the harmony of orthogonal lines and organic lines. These two different architectural languages are combined in a single project. It combines modern architectural lines, function and geometry inspired by nature.‍

Materials Used‍

In the twin towers, which have a rich material scale: quality, usefulness and elegant material selections were given great importance. With natural materials coming to the forefront in the landscape and lux, noble and stylish material preferences in the interior, very different material harmonies were designed. Especially in the grand lobby area, a stylish, noble and luxurious atmosphere was added to the interior with LED panels, shiny metallic walls and floor coverings, which were not seen very often before.‍


For a project of this scale to be designed in a sustainable, zero-energy and efficient way, the passive sustainable system must be designed in the most ideal way. The green areas offered to the user in the design, which gives importance to green and ventilation, contribute to the natural wind circulation in the middle area. The design, supported by natural materials, supports natural coolness and ventilation with shaded and courtyard areas created to adapt to the hot and arid desert climate.

The Threshold of Welcome

The villa greets residents and visitors alike with a grand glass gate, allowing clear sightlines to the welcoming spiral staircase within. This transparent entryway symbolizes the villa's openness and connection to the environment while guiding guests into its luxurious embrace.

Sky-High Serenity

Atop the villa, the rooftop pool zone offers a liberating escape under the open sky. It's a space designed for relaxation and contemplation, where the water reflects the changing moods of the day and the limitless freedom above.

Harmony in Materials

The material selection for the Waterfall Villa speaks to our dedication to natural harmony and sustainability. Natural stone and wood are thoughtfully incorporated, ensuring the home resonates with the warmth and authenticity of its materials. The use of environmentally friendly stone and durable San Marco paint ensures longevity, echoing our commitment to sustainable luxury.

The Waterfall Villa Experience

The Waterfall Villa by Pencil Dezign stands as a bastion of modern living, offering a unique experience where privacy, natural beauty, and architectural ingenuity coexist. It's not just a residence; it's a lifestyle statement for those who seek an extraordinary living space.
