LALIBELA RESIDENCE

TYPOLOGY: Residential LOCATION: Lalibela, Ethiopia ARCHITECTS:  RAAS ARCHITECTS CLIENT:  COMPLETION DATE: 20–CONTRACT VALUE: BIRR — MILLION BUILT AREA:  STATUS: Concept

This project is located in one of the most historical places in the country. The site has a slop of 8 meters’ elevation difference between its lowest and highest altitudes. The site is cut only on the area in which building footprint hits the natural ground.

As we study the site slope by integrating the building into it, we created a green roof connected with the garden on the upper level. And decks in the lower level to be accessed from the lower level but both are connected by external stairs.

It has a living room, dining area, kitchen, bathroom, and three bedrooms on one floor and a terrace view with the master bedroom on the top floor.
