Located in Naccache, Lebanon, this site has spectacular views towards Beirut and
the Mediterranean Sea.
The project is conceived as one monolithic block, which is then carved and sliced
in order to open up toward the view.
A series of perforations along the other three facades respond directly to the
interior program, and take use of parametric modeling techniques in order to
accurately reflect these areas.
The site is severely sloped toward this view, creating a situation in which there are
only three main facades.
