Calypso House in Jouneih Bay, Lebanon by SOMA Architects

Saturday, June 11th, 2016

Article source: SOMA Architects

New York-based architects SOMA delivered an outstanding private residence located on the north side of Jouneih Bay, Lebanon.

It is a significant milestone for a project whose design plunges into the sea, Calypso hovers over the water like a crystal emerging from the rocks. Nestled on a small strip of rugged rocks between the main road and the sea, the form of the house is derived directly from this ragged landscape.

Byblos Town Hall in Lebanon by HASHIM SARKIS STUDIOS

Saturday, May 21st, 2016

Article source: HASHIM SARKIS STUDIOS

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.

Roland Helou Design (ROHD) is behind an interior design marvel whose intriguing design will delightfully bemuse even the most philistine eye.

Zeytouneh Square in Beirut, Lebanon by Gustafson Porter

Thursday, September 3rd, 2015

Article source: Gustafson Porter

Situated at the southern end of Shoreline Walk, Zeytouneh Square is one of a series of connected public spaces created as part of Beirut’s re-emergence from the 1975‒1990 Civil War. Research into each space revealed remnants of the character of the pre-war city that had been forgotten or destroyed. These remnants provided the inspiration for the four diverse spaces, each of which reveals elements of memory from the past.

Nikki Beach Resort in Damour, Lebanon by SOMA architects

Tuesday, July 7th, 2015

Article source: SOMA architects

Responding to strong and specific data, our proposal for this project purposefully takes into consideration the cultural heritage in which it is set. Situated at terminus of the Damour River, the site is a gently sloping terrain with stupendous views of the Mediterranean and the river. Our proposal utilizes a radical system that is found in several natural formations: a branching configuration. It seemed like the natural solution to gently break down the site’s slope into a series of volumes perfectly oriented to the key sea and river views without obstruction from other buildings. Each “branch” allows direct street access, both pedestrian and vehicular, and soon individual volumes start to emerge following a rigorous strategy of sitting, form and placement in relation to external context, program requirements, and maximized privacy.

Sin El Fil in Beirut, Lebanon by SOMA Architects

Thursday, April 9th, 2015

Article source: SOMA Architects

The three volumes of the mixed use compound are situated in Sin el Fil, Lebanon, near an important junction of highways and major roadways to the East of Beirut. The site also provides panoramic views toward the center of Beirut to the East and to the mountains to the West. In order to take advantage of this unique location, and the panoramic views, the project is conceived as three volumes arrayed about a central focal point in the center of the site. Each volume is in turn chamfered toward the outside, creating terraces toward their respective views, while on the ground floor, the buildings chamfer in, creating impressive cantilevers and freeing up large areas of outdoor space. The building directly along the highway serves as an office tower with a large retail base extending along the highway, while the other two buildings provide apartments. This positioning creates three basic outdoor spaces: one for a public drop odd, one for a private drop off, and a third used as a playground and collective garden space.
