This Project combines new classical/ traditional Lebanese architecture that returned to traditional rules with the continuity of modernism since each architecture shall reflect its times. Using the laws of nature, this project was conceived in a modern manner and yet plugged by classical and traditional architectonic elements (arches, roman columns, consoles...etc.) From a rectangular IWAN emerges self-replicating rectangles that stimulates to create open interactive spaces. In these boxes, arches are introduced as openings facing a double-leveled transparent wall. An Inside-Outside Dialogue is enhanced to enlarge spectacular views to the mountains of Kleiat.
