It's hard to see where the landscape ends and the House On the Rocks. Its concrete volumes appear to have been chiseled from the natural rock formations like a modern cave dwelling. Located in the mountains of Lebanon, the residence integrates into the scenery with a series of cement volumes topped with a zinc roof. A cascading staircase in the rocks leads to an entry terrace with a pool and a zen garden. Internally, the monolithic aesthetic fades to a warm interior lined in wood. Walls of floor-to-ceiling glazing open the inside to expansive views across the neighboring rock park, the valley below, and Beirut in the distance.
