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.

IXSIR Winery in Jbeil, Lebanon by Raed Abillama Architects

Thursday, July 18th, 2013

Article source: Raed Abillama Architects

A living spine of revealed processes and experiences, in strict to the wine making process, debuts from within the existing, resorted, 140 year old house, to flow within the layered functional spaces of the wine factory as a exhibited living wine making body. Integrated within the green thick skin of the Basbina outskirts, in a site that overlooks the northern costal lines from its north-western edges, and the cedar lines from its south eastern stretch, the winery synthesises an old exciting resorted feudal house with the factory’s modern built structure. The initial approach focussed on the complete symbiosis of the built with the natural.

Beirut House of Arts and Culture in Lebanon by François Blanciak Architect

Thursday, May 3rd, 2012

Article source: François Blanciak Architect

As a way to organize this cultural venue in a coherent way regarding program, light, and public space, the project re-uses the symbolic morphology of the archetypal pitch-roof house. The upper part of the building is composed of three main volumes that respectively contain artistic, cultural, and house-related spaces, and which are linked by a large triangular void. Structurally, two continuous circulation cores support the edifice and connect all the various disciplines from bottom to top.

MYU Restaurant-Bar in Beirut, Lebanon by Paul Kaloustian Architect

Wednesday, March 21st, 2012

Article source: Paul Kaloustian Architect

Located in the iconic night life district of Beirut, the MYU bar/restaurant inhabits an old small liquor factory. The design concept is based on creating 2 separate spaces of bar and restaurant defined by 2 vaults different in scale. These vaults which form a room within a room are made of stretch black fabric that is translucent. The original space is kept as found with graffiti and traces on walls and ceiling. The indirect cold cathodes lighting is dimmable thus allowing the space within the vaults to become darker and more defined once the light is dimmed. The restaurant and the bar communicate by a large \”window\” allowing people to connect visually.

More projects by Zaha Hadid

Created as a nexus for academic study, research and policy making, our design finds harmony between natural and imposed landscapes – producing a building that emerges fluidly from its surrounds. A building that flows upwards, which is both open and spacious despite the constricted space it occupies.

The Issam Fares Institute (IFI) for Public Policy and International Affairs at the American University of Beirut serves students and academics while also providing a powerful nexus for local, regional and international researchers, thinkers and policy makers.

Before the appearance and the diffusion of cinemas and of mass media the Hakawati was the main form of entertainment in Arabic-speaking countries and most notably in Lebanon. The Hakawati was a storyteller who thrilled his audience with a story.
