Embracing the charm of an old home

Joun, Lebanon



This project maintains the traditional aspect of the original structure of the house, yet combines contemporary elements in the balancing: Bringing in light, energy and practical living. It is the product of a unique combination between physical context and history.  our work is inspired by the initial research phase, where we investigate the history of the site and its physical constraints and opportunities. By approaching the design in this way the new building feels more connected to the landscape and the history of the site. The result: a contemporary new building that feels like it belongs.
