Meditation House

Location: Lebanon


The house design is a pure geometric stone mass with basic structure in full harmony with the surrounding pure nature. The ground level encloses the living, dining and kitchen areas in a single open space recalling the mono-cellular vernacular Lebanese house. While the integrated terrace offers maximum visual expansion with full sun exposure, the back of the room creates a sense of interior and serenity with controlled natural light. The openings on the front and the back of the living room act as vents creating continuous natural ventilation throughout the house. Isolated from the main view, bedrooms situated on the upper floor offer an introvert sensation of calmness with diffused light.
