Gorgeous Home Perched on Cliff’s Edge Opens Up Towards the Sea

Located in Nahr el Mot, Lebanon sits the gorgeous seaside home known as Amchit Residence. It was designed by Blankpage Architects and is perched on the edge of a cliff with a boardwalk-like rooftop deck and a lap pool for unobstructed ocean views.

The property is sleek and modern with a warm-yet-minimalist feeling interior that emphasizes concrete and wood. It was conceived by the architects as a series of decks that maximize the home's relationship to the sea; they designed it outwards and towards the water rather than away from it. An upper platform contains the master bedroom constructed in walls of glass, while the middle deck features two additional bedrooms and a family living area. The lower platform serves as a reception space with an infinity pool and a staircase that leads you to the shore.

Amchit Residence is at seal level and oriented almost due west, so the sunset is a spectacular time of day. The airy, open feel invites rays of sunshine and drenches the spaces in a deep reddish-orange glow. Couple this with the citrus, olive, and palm trees that are sprinkled throughout the property, and you have a slice of paradise.
