Ba’aqlin, Lebanon, 2001

The beauty of this 19th Century stone house is in its simplicity. Consisting of twelve cross vaults, it was considered one of the largest houses of its time. Untouched for at least fifty years, the house needed a complete refurbishment. However all efforts were made to accommodate the client’s needs of modern facilities with minimum disruption to the structure and the geometry of the vaults. All original features where refurbished and reinstalled as per the original detail to maintain the integrity of the house.

Area: 445 sq.m.
