Spectacular house built on the ruins of a torture hell-hole: Lebanese prison where captives were flayed with whips and electric cables is transformed into modern home (22 Pics)

Beautiful images have revealed a stylish new home raised from the ruins of a house that was taken over by the Lebanese military and other militia and used as a torture and detention centre for 28 years.
Striking shots show the original building before the war, at the end of military occupation and the 22000-square-foot new property being built on the site.
Coined 'The House with Two Lives' by Lebanese design practice Nabil Gholam Architects, the property is set within a stunning site surrounded by a pine forest near the mountain village of Bois de Boulogne, in Lebanon.
