Description: Located on a steep site in Jubaiha area, Amman, this residential development includes several independent four stories high apartment buildings overlooking Baq’a area with spectacular views of the distant mountains. The project is designed on three levels stepping up the hilly site and taking advantage of the steep slopes to accommodate the various living functions, services and underground parking. The stepping floors create garden terraces/balconies on different levels for outdoor living and enjoyment of the surrounding landscape and distant scenery. The contemporary architectural image is achieved externally through the articulation and use of natural Jordanian stone walls, with generous glazed windows together with wooden pergolas and shade screens.
