If you own a sensational penthouse in the city of Beirut Lebanon then most homeowners and architects would want to incorporate the distant Mediterranean views into the overall scheme of things. But iconic architect Bernard Khoury has always had ideas that have challenged conventions and redefined the trendy.
The sophisticated living area with its high ceiling is a perfect example of how to use black indoors while keeping the space airy and inviting. Bright yellow accents spread throughout the residence add some much needed color and a large dining area and stunning contemporary kitchen complement the living space elegantly. The indoor water feature is the central focal point around which every public space in the house revolves and superb furnishings from M Square Lifestyle Design add to the elite aura of this South African home.
Overlooking the majestic Atlantic ocean the open design of this house and the seemingly unending horizontal plane that defines it draw you in instantly. Crafted to mimic the mythical idea of a a meeting-place for humans and gods the home seems like a seamless edge between the beautiful beach and the Atlantic that stands right in front of it. The elevated horizontal plane is 20 meters long and 36 meters deep and houses two full levels of living space underneath it. Embracing a sleek minimal look without any frills the interior keeps the focus firmly outside.
The architect has compared the design to music where the dominant themes are sweetness peace and tranquility. It’s very important to respect the place’s natural elements and also act with some independence and dedication to bring out the virtues of the island. I think Ramon Esteve has done an astonishing job in building a house that really makes you dream.
The two antennas that contain the outdoor lights for the pool deck give the impression of twin military tanks mounted on top of the building from a distance! The penthouse itself is completely different from the building below it in terms of both its skin and interior giving it a sense of exclusivity.
A modern kitchen with a brick wall backdrop and other public spaces are located on the lower level while the top floor houses the bedrooms and the bathrooms. Keeping the focus firmly on the backyard this is on home that encourages its residents to spend more time outside than indoors.
