On the North side of Jounieh Bay, where the mountains plunge into the sea, Calypso hovers over the water. The form of the house, derived directly from its surrounding landscape, is striated into three distinct levels.
The continuous wrap around deck at the lower level acts as a wave breaker to deflect the waves. The second line of defense is the glass itself: a patented system of laminated glazing supported by structural steel.
SCOPE OF WORK
– 65 linear meters of uninterrupted minimalistic Vitrocsa glass wall surrounding the house, and offering breathtaking views of the sea and the mountains to the tenants, throughout the year, while providing the required rigidity, air and water tightness through custom designed reinforced profile system.
– Multi-laminated glazing capable to withstand the waves’ pressure up to 40 Tons/m2.
