Construction is set to begin on 4of7 Architecture’s latest residences in Faqra, Mount Lebanon. Working with Accent Design Group, the team has designed holiday residences that will serve as ski retreats for those living nearby in Beirut. Situated at an altitude of 1850m, the buildings’ placement emphasizes the topography of the site.

More about the project after the break.

Eight differentiated volumes sit on the site and their geometric shape is governed by the height limitation and the inclined roof restrictions placed on the project.  The volumes are treated independently, as each reacts to its specific topographic situation.   The apartments’ varying terraces, windows and gardens fit the dwellers’ needs and also respond to the site’s geometry.

“As a result the project becomes a group of clusters formed by interrelated but not identical components,” explained the architects.
