Saifi 162 Building

The massive duality, between this pre-existing traditional 1920’s Lebanese building & the new extension built onto it, reveals a connecting void within its walls. Acting as a central core, a pivoting axis of movement & circulation, the house’s users dwell around this void, constantly encountering and perceiving scenes of each other’s lives. Through the various interplays of openings between the public & private, interior & exterior spaces, it becomes a stage where different actions & daily activities thrive in harmony.
