Laqlouq Residence WY

Laqlouq is a small mountainous village in the Jbeil District, known for its high altitude. Inspired by the beauty of their land, and similarly to traditional Lebanese villages, the residents created an architecture from its stones and timbers both simple and refined. The relationship between architecture and nature being the central force of the village’s design character, we naturally focused on opening the house to the side of the valley by forming a platform for the enjoyment of the dramatic landscape. The seasonal character of the area placed family at the core of the activity program, and accordingly the landscape was designed to accommodate social gatherings and large family events, with a small pool, an outdoor kitchen, and sitting areas. Moreover, the choice of plants was specially made to suit the snowy nature of the area during winter time.
