The designed area is about 1000 m2 distributed over 3 floors: a first basement floor, ground floor and first floor. The main entrance in the ground floor is connected directly to the house garden and overridden with a 3-arches. It leads to the reception room, dining room, and a small kitchen connected to the reception room in the first basement floor. It provides visual communication between the two floor and it catches the view of the outdoor garden and water features.
The first floor includes a big living room for the family opened directly to the terrace surrounded by 4 main bed rooms each containing a private bathroom and a dressing room.
The first basement floor includes the living room, the main kitchen, food storage rooms, servants’ quarters, a small playing room for children, and a home cinema in addition to other integral parts in the amazing house.
Schema designed the exterior facades of the house reflecting its vivid spirit adding some modern and new-classical touches to the traditional features of the Lebanese house. Two kinds of natural stones cover the exterior facades largely resembling the formations of old facades in color, size and texture.
During the design, Schema had mostly focused on ensuring the interaction between the home internal area and the external nature. Thus, we have benefited from the technical development that allowed designing the large arches with transparent glass facades instead of small arches.
