Deir Al Kalaa Hotel in BeitMeri, Lebanon by SOMA architects

Tuesday, April 7th, 2015

Article source: SOMA architects

The Deir Al Kalaa Country Club is located in historic BeitMeri, an area in the mountains of Lebanon long associated with leisure from the time of Romans. Situated on the mountainside leading up to BeitMeri, the site is a sloping terrain with stupendous views of the valley below and at some points the city of Beirut.  The country club approached us to request an expansion of the existing building to accommodate a hotel, dedicated spa, and additional pool.

Nestlé Waters Beirut Headquarters by Bernard Mallat Architects

Thursday, March 12th, 2015

Article source: Bernard Mallat Architects

The Nestlé Waters’offices & warehouse are located on a lot near the Beirut River. It is a project intended to function as a logistical platform for the company; a head office that doubles up as a primary storage and distribution site.

The scheme yields to the highly functional aspect of the warehouse by letting the vehicle path and turning radii carve its mass and produce a volume that maximizes size without losing efficiency. The office block acknowledges the importance of uninterrupted flow & sits atop the warehouse cantilevering above the access and creating a grand gate for the ubiquitous delivery truck.

Senteurs d’Orient Headquarters in Beirut, Lebanon by Atelier130

Thursday, March 12th, 2015

Article source: Atelier130

The concept behind the main headquarters of this luxury soap brand revolves around the actual soap bar. Inspired by the intricate packaging of the company’s soaps, the structure was first conceived as a box, sliced in half. Around the two distinct structures, a garden alive with greenery and a variety of aromas that linger and welcome visitors, reminiscent of the variety of soap scents. The first structure, where the company’s manufacturing plant is located, is covered by a woven metal wire mesh on top of a wall covered with the brand’s soap patterns. The second structure, which hosts the company’s offices, benefits from wide openings, protected from the sun thanks to sliding aluminum louvers that bring privacy to employees.

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.

Unilux Group lighting showroom in LEBANON by SOMA Architects

Saturday, December 13th, 2014

Article source: SOMA Architects

With 20 meters of frontage but only 4 meters of depth, the existing ground floor space provided a unique opportunity for a commercial street front fit for a lighting showroom. The client, Unilux Group – the largest supplier of high end light fixtures in Lebanon, requested a unique space in which to exhibit the products sold by the company. Due to the shallow depth of the existing main space, a conscious decision was made to envision the space as larger than its confines of the walls in order to visually appear larger as well as draw pedestrians into the store.

N.B.K. Residence (2) in Beirut, Lebanon by Bernard Khoury / DW5

Saturday, August 2nd, 2014

Article source: Bernard Khoury

Located at the ninth and last level of the Plot # 2251 project which we conceived in 2008  and for which construction ended in 2013, this three-storey apartment is articulated through an independent structure cappingthe building. Structurally, the apartment only shares the building’s vertical circulation core, as well as the perimeter along which its two peripheral walls lie. Beyond the ninth level, the structure of this residence becomes autonomous, rendering it morphologically detached from the edifice. The result is what resembles an independent house placed atop a building, rather than what is commonly known as a penthouse or roof level apartment.

Jiyeh Villa in Lebanon by Accent Design Group

Saturday, July 12th, 2014

Article source: Accent Design Group

This house is situated on the coastal beachtown of Jiyeh, south from Beirut. It can be described as an arrangement of four volumes, which are layered in a way to create a rhythmic composition. The alternating elements further invite the landscape to filter into the house, creating private courtyards for the residents. Each one of the four volumes functions separately, while their overall composition creates transitions between the public and private spaces of the project.
