Tarkeeb Gate House and Garden Security Booth

William Sarnecky

Architecture, Building and Structure Design Tarkeeb Gate House and Garden Security Booth by William Sarnecky The Tarkeeb Gate House and Garden replaces an aging air-conditioned guard booth at the entrance of a restricted parking area on the College’s campus. The project provides an air-conditioned interior for a security guard, exterior shaded areas, drinking fountain and small garden for the security, janitorial and landscape campus workers. It incorporates an exterior parasol inspired by local mashrabiya (architectural screens) to mitigate solar gain on the interior air-conditioned booth while simultaneously creating a pair of shaded exterior living spaces.
