Plot 4328: Modernism Steps Up in Lebanon

Arch Daily

There was time when I used to run the stadium steps at my local high school for exercise. (Now, I have trouble finding the time to leave the house for any kind of work out.) But imagine if I lived here?? I could pop out the front door, run a few sets, and at the end, plop my perspiring self into the pool at the top! How cool would that be?

Built on a 10 meter drop, Plot 4328 by Bernard Khoury Architects in Kfardebian, Mount Lebanon is a sloping masterpiece of light and purpose - a genius work whose front façade becomes its roof and whose external features become its best amenities. That's not to say that the interiors are anything to sneeze at, though. Located on three levels, the two units have skylights that flood them with light from above and floor to ceiling windows that look out on to the valley below. There's even a mobile balcony to move you vertically from terrace to terrace. How brilliant is that?
