Situated in the residential neighborhood of Achrafieh, in eastern Beirut, this substantial apartment sits on the eighth floor of a new high rise apartment building. This four-bedroom home benefits from a rich quality of light and open views from the floor to ceiling windows, with the interiors of the apartment designed to make the most of these open skyline vistas.

The main living area is a generous, multi-purpose space unified by its beige travertine floors and natural colour palette, while the owner’s art collection offering splashes of colour against the white walls. A welcoming dining area is situated at one end of this space, featuring a custom designed light installation floating over the dining table; at night these shining alabaster orbs have a lunar quality.

A spacious lounge sits at the other end of this fluid space. The choice of furniture mixes contemporary designs with some mid-century treasures, such as the shelving system designed during the Fifties by Franco Albini. The travertine floors continue out to the adjoining terraces and balconies, which serve as an extension of the internal living space and offer enticing outdoor rooms for use in the day or evenings. The bedrooms also feature modest balconies and expansive views, while adopting a warm palette of materials, including oak floors and bespoke joinery. A healthy provision of integrated storage ensures that these spaces remain calm, ordered and uncluttered.
