Byblos Town Hall in Lebanon by HASHIM SARKIS STUDIOS

Saturday, May 21st, 2016


Hashim Sarkis was awarded the commission of the new Byblos Town Hall after an anonymous open competition.

Byblos, one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world and a World Heritage Site, has been growing outside the historic city bounds to the point where most of the city’s population now lives in its suburbs. Boasting a historic harbor, two crusader castles, several historic churches and mosques in addition to an extensive Phoenician, Hellenistic and Roman heritage, the city is the most visited tourist site in Lebanon.
