Located in Kfour, Lebanon, Tahan Villa (2013) by BLANKPAGE Architects. The position of the house is optimized to enhance the view at a maximum while respecting the sloped nature of the terrain. It was conceived as an architectural adaptation of the rocks that characterized the surrounding scenery. In essence, it is a massive volume, seemingly floating in the landscape. The facade is clad with sliding stone panels that resemble the texture of the rocks. It rests on a transparent box which is shaped by a series of platforms that adapt to the topography. These platforms form a transition, from a stepped access, that links the street level to the house. On the roof of the house, there is a light steel pergola which is finished with terracotta louvers and contains a painting studio surrounded by a roof terrace. The final outcome resulted in a prismatic stone volume within an existing landscape. The house can be read as a subversion of the traditional Lebanese village house.

Amchit Residence by BLANKPAGE Architects located in Amchit, Lebanon. The 4,200 ft² ( 390 m²) home was conceived as a layering of decks, the beach house seeks to maximize its relationship with the sea through a visual and compositional celebration of horizontality in general and the Mediterranean horizon in particular. Conceived as a layering of decks, the beach house seeks to maximize its relationship with the sea through a visual and compositional celebration of horizontality in general and the Mediterranean horizon in particular. The slabs are held by a minimal steel structure made of equally sized square columns on a regular module of 2.55m, as well as a discreet glass enclosure.

 

 

 


 

Given the inclined nature of the site, the house is approached by a car on the street level just below the upper deck. At the external landing entrance, the circulation interconnects the three levels of the house. The upper platform contains the master bedroom that opens up on an elongated lap pool and expansive sun deck. The middle platform houses two bedrooms and a family living. Finally, the lower deck serves as a reception area that extends outdoors towards the sea through an infinity pool as well as a staircase to the shore. In addition to the inner circulation core, a smooth promenade formed by a system of external ramps and staircases connects the platforms, linking the various levels of the rocky landscape that stretches between the street all the way to the sea.
