The area of intervention, 10 km west from Tripoli (Libya), is a 10-hectare piece of land, with an irregular ground profile downgrading towards the Mediterranean Sea. The area, originally consisting of a series of typical Mediterranean North-African landscape with sand dunes, was highly man-made and was thus involved in a radical transformation plan. The intervention encompassed a new residential district combined with touristic and commercial edifices. The assignment aimed at reconnecting the existing structures and areas, which looked more disfigured than resulting from a coordinate and planned action. Therefore, the project provided a terracing system with a series of elevations with local stone walls defining pedestrian paths and gardens as well as connecting the villas with each other; outdoor spaces were also organized as a big garden not only dedicated to walking but also to playing and open-air activities.
