Jbeil Residence CY

Situated within the historical city of Byblos this residential garden is inspired by the vernacular Lebanese character and lifestyle of the local people. The proposal entails the creation of a minimalist open space that maximizes on function within a small 216 m² area. Apart from introducing a central water feature and strategic seating areas, the existing trees were preserved and the botanical composition was completed with ornamental climbers and ground covers. The entrance welcomes users through a trellis covered in lush climbers. In fact, the use of climbers around the entire periphery gives the garden a cooling and comforting sense of privacy while softening the geometric edges of the architecture.
