Batroun is a village to many charms, where every corner of its undefined streets leads one to charming corners of informal and vernacular architecture, but most of all, that always leads you to the sea. The sea is perceivable for the village scale but isn’t easily accessible to all the visitors of the area. Therefore, the project aimed to answer programmatic needs of a coastal and touristic public, all articulated around a passage that takes you from the street level to the sea level. This passage eventually became the guiding line around which the project was organized, becoming itself a platform for social encounters and dividing the guest houses from the public functions of the program. The two volumes communicate with each other through the passage they share, their view to the sea, and their formal language that integrated the project subtly with its context, blended in a series of roofs on a sea strip.
