Abou-Adal Commercial Block

Achrafieh, Lebanon

Client: Mr. Raymond Abou-Adal
Status: Completed 1998

The contrasting use of brick and glass induces a volumetric tension that allows the shop to stand out despite the small area of the plot. The brick engulfs the glazed display volume tempering its high-tech feel; thus, allowing it to blend within the context.
