Situated on the Mtayleb prominence in Lebanon, this residential building consists of two volumes overlooking a steep hill with impressive views of the surrounding areas.  Responding to regional zoning regulations, the two volumes are sliced and molded to not only conform to these regulations, but also to maximize views, day lighting, and orientation.  The use of terracotta cladding and glass on the facades along with the geometrical form transforms the interior into an enclosed yet transparent volume.
