An original frame house in Baabdat, Lebanon

Located in the middle of a pine forest, in Baabdat, the Lebanese region of Metn, this spacious house, designed by the architects of the studio Joe Serrins, allows you to live in total harmony with its environment very rich in vegetation. Gracefully embracing the plot, it merges with its surroundings in a clever and natural way.

Overlooking Beirut, this single-family residential villa nestled on the heights of Baabdat, a summer city located about twenty kilometers from the Lebanese capital, is the work of new york-based architectural firm Joe Serrins. Hidden among hundred-year-old pines, the exceptional house is perfectly embedded in its environment. Erected on a steeply sloping rocky plot, it is designed to go up and dig the hill, so that residents can enjoy the beautiful panorama at any time. Composed of a series of overlapping cubes, its 562 m2, spread over four levels, are all turned towards the surrounding landscape and combine a concrete structure, cladding in roughly cut gray stone interspersed with volumes of white plaster and large glass breakthroughs from top to bottom. On each level, terraces extend the interior of the residence. We live outside, with the mountains view in our sights. Generously bathed in light, the interior, which combines noble and raw materials with natural and contemporary tones, is as luxurious as it is spacious. Inside, several staircases, interior and exterior, meander through and around the building, connecting all the living spaces to the idyllic setting. Elegant and open, the villa invites you to relax.
