The Baabdat Residence is an inversion design of the traditional agricultural terracing. This results in spectacular 180 degree views out to the mountains beyond, and a camouflaged home from above.

The program for the home consists of garage, library, kitchen, dining and living space, and multiple bedrooms.
The roof sweep transforms the house from one floor to two floors. Constructed terracotta fins interlaced with greenery suggest the merging of architecture and landscape. A roundabout drop off is incorporated within its circular form.
