d+h chalets
faqra, lebanon

Tucked into the steep landscape of the Faqra Resort on the edge of a cliff, these two single-family chalets are designed to provide all the comfort and amenities within a relatively compact space.

Access is gained from the planted roof at street level.

The inner house is free of structure and uses timber portioning throughout.
Each house is framed on one side by an “intelligent wall” that carries all the accessible technical conduits and natural ventilation shafts to the open floors and on the others, it opens up to the spectacular views of the valley and the Mediterranean beyond.
