This is an original villa concept in the style of modern Middle Eastern Architecture. Done with SketchUp 2018 and V-Ray 3.6 for rendering.
The traditional elements are present as these:
- Iwan – a large, rectangular, intricately decorated vaulted portal structure to the main entrance door, which is inspired from medieval Persian Architecture.
- Semi-circular arch and pointed arch
- Muqarnas – ornamental vaulting design featured in the Iwan

Finally, this is my second attempt at creating a more complex Muqarnas. I use a 2D geometric art image as the reference, and just playing around with the edges, forming contours.
