ALMIMARIYA, architects and designers was established in Beirut , Lebanon in 1998. Our main concern is to develop an architecture that is environmentally responsible and culturally relevant. The context is our inspiration. By context we mean not just the site, climate and building materials, but the users and their culture. This, we believe, will lead to sustainable developments which are at the heart of our concerns with energy efficiency, the corner stone of our approach. Good architecture, we believe, is a product of communication and understanding between us and our clients, celebrating the rich aspects of our culture and environment.
