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

    Sitting right in the middle of the war-swept Mediterranean coast of the Levant, with the scars of conflict and violence still visible in its urban tissue, the city of Beirut, despite all the difficulties it has faced, is now home to a flourishing design and architecture scene. With impressive large-scale projects already finished or approaching completion (including an iconic new university building by Zaha Hadid and a translucent mixed-use tower complex near the city’s port by Renzo Piano), as well as smaller scale projects (one cannot ignore the work of the people behind the Carwan Gallery, or the ingenious lighting design of .PSLAB), the Lebanese capital seems bent on pinning itself permanently on the global design map, as a place where time-honoured traditions meet with cutting-edge practices and contemporary aesthetics.

    A perfect example of what the city’s design and crafts scene can indeed achieve is the N.B.K Residence (2) by architectBernard Khoury and his firm, DW5. Literally perched atop a nine-storey building adjacent to the infamous Green Line (the dividing buffer zone that used to split the city into the West/Muslim and East/Christian parts), the residence is in fact the architect’s own home, and as such it reflects his continuous experimentations and accumulated experience in interior design techniques, all in close collaboration with local artisans and design specialists.

    As it doesn’t share any visible structural elements with the building on which it stands, the N.B.K. Residence (2) looks more like an independent house stacked on top of the existing structure, spanning three levels: the first floor and a mezzanine comprise the main volume of the living areas (including a spectacular double-height lobby and living room with generous views to the city), while a guest house, maid’s room, swimming pool and roof-garden terrace are situated on the topmost level. Wooden panel cladding has been used to cover interior floors and walls, in a technique that comes from experimentations in previous projects and was executed in collaboration with carpenter Doumit Tannous. The strong presence of wood has been complemented with black-painted steelwork: the ribbon-like spiral staircase, the mezzanine structure, the bookshelves in the lobby and the signature antenna-lights on top of the building were all created by Beirut-based design studio Acid (especially the latter shine like beacons at night, making the residence stand out as a landmark in the surrounding area).
