Project description
The main issue in this project was how to organize the client’s restrictive demands of small openings with the specific site characteristics: On one hand a breathtaking unobstructed view towards the Roman ruins of Faqra and on the other hand a pie-chart shaped plot with its triangular end towards the view. Atop of that, sloped tiled roof and stone cladding were a must. We chose a particular internal setup at 45° within a square box shaped volume emphasizing the axis of the view.

Built Area: 405 m²
External Areas: 485 m²
Date: 2005
Location: Faqra, Kesrwan, Lebanon.
