The objective of this thesis is to develop a residential model for steep slopes, in the mountain village of Ajaltoun. It is anticipated that this preliminary design would represent an alternative method for residential development on steep slopes in the context of Lebanon. The study starts with an introduction describing the existing housing conditions that resulted from the continuing civil war and the need to develop steep land, thus justifying the purpose of such a model. The introduction is followed by the project description where the goals and strategies of this preliminary design are stated and the physical layout graphically presented. The project deals only with the design aspects of the circulation and access, the lots subdivision layout, and the dwelling layout.
