n house is a residential project located in Baskinta, a town in Lebanon northeast of Beirut. Notable for its rocky landscape and endless views, Baskinta sits at an altitude of approximately 1,800 m.

The project embraces the steep character of the site by hanging off its edge on one side, and extends more subtly along the other into an outdoor garden and pool. The house is divided in two parts, one for a family of four and the other, a studio for the family’s grandfather.

The house’s exterior concrete fabric texture is inspired by the patterns and textures found on the rocks along the site.
