Working with DADA & Associates again on this residential building on a beach site at Berbara in Lebanon on the Mediterranean sea.

The house has designed to take full advantage of all the characteristics of its coastal site, by optimising passive solar design and using renewable energy.

DADA & Associates have commissioned ZEF to work on this refurbishment of a listed building, which provides a great challenge to develop a sustainable and energy efficient design.

However, with efficient use of renewable technologies and creative design of the natural ventilation, daylighting; under-floor heating and cooling; and under-wall cooling for high ceiling rooms, ZEF tackled the challenge head-on by pro-active strategies to provide a healthy and comfortable internal environment.
