Mar Mikael is rife in the rare kind of qualities that could create a promising neighborhood. The neighborhood is situated on the outskirts of downtown and close to the highway making Mar Mikael easily accessible. Several new projects sprouting up in the area have led to gentrification of the Mar Mikael district, but have also delivered a fresh plate for architects to create new architecture for Beirut.

BOBO is a mixed-use building that reaches beyond such a challenge. This crystalline formation detaches itself in a strong contrast from its surroundings while its reflective glass skin simultaneously reflects the surrounding urban fabric. The project itself was set to replace a row of disused shops at one end and a 1920s’ two story dwelling situated at the other. The 1920’s house is not allowed to be demolished so the structure will stay and the inside will rebuilt to house a gallery and retail space. The building has been built around the home andretail space has been given over to the ground floor.
