Paul Kaloustian Architects have provided us with some information about their latest Beirut project, which creates shaded private “ïn-between” spaces for future residents using fabric skin that allows muted transparency and a continuously changing appearence of the building. We share it with you here on desMena:
The apartment building is located in the dense district of Gemayze in Beirut. The street enjoys an alignment of old buildings from one side and a big garden and church on the other. The designed building continues the street alignment while developing an organic growth from the rear part with a garden and a smaller structure. The new building is integrated into the urban environment but at the same time it opens up towards a more generous perception of the city.
