This project is situated in the town of Faqra in Mount Lebanon, at an altitude of 1800m, and contains a series of apartments planned as ski retreats for people who live in the city. The rocky landscape inspired the development and massing of the project as a cluster of three compounds containing the various units, adapting to the site topography and accentuating it.
Moreover, the height limitations and the pitched roof requirements played a role in determining the overall geometry of the envelope. As a result the project becomes a group of clusters formed by interrelated but not identical components. The overall design strategy was to develop a project that responds effectively to the program and the building regulations, while adapting to the site and creating positive outdoor spaces and relations between the various components.Accent Design Group Project name: Snowflake
