Located on the highest mountain of Qanat Bakich in Lebanon, Villa Olympea embodies beauty and sophistication.

Embedded within the topography, the composition is formed of 2 L-shaped structures interacting on the ground floor, creating an internal green patio that can be visible from anywhere in the house. A Cedar tree, the emblem of Lebanon, has been placed in the internal patio, being the heart of the project.

The ground floor is connected to a double volume holding a mezzanine floor called the pool house, where 16 people can be seated, facing a huge indoor fireplace, and enjoys the magnificent view of Qanad Bakich Mountains. Rhythmic stairs will lead you to a 3 side glass infinity pool, and a wooden cantilever with a pair of lounge beds. Source by Joy Alexandre Harb.
