Conserving traditional Palestinian architecture is an overwhelming task for Palestinian architects. In the two villages of Deir Istya and Kufur Abboush, architect Nadia Habash faced the challenge of designing two reservoirs in the middle of the old core of these villages, which have maintained their vernacular architectural style. She succeeded in turning the two brutal concrete structures of the 200-cubic-metre elevated R.C. reservoir into a piece of art harmonising with the environment.
