Building on the successful professional relationship with FNB (First National Bank), Makki & Associates was asked to design FNB Finance’s new headquarters in Beirut, Lebanon. Located on a prominent boulevard, the existing building structure is conveniently and strategically located on a site, viewed from all different directions in and out of the city of Beirut.
The new building embraces FNB Finance’s desire to create a dynamic and flexible office space and environment expressing the company’s vision towards the future.
The Y.A.C project is located in the south of Lebanon isolated in a vast natural setting. The project came to be as the client’s vision of enriching and providing the area with an activity program suitable for the surrounding residents. The program is broken down into five major parts: a main entrance hall & exhibition, a youth center, workshops, a restaurant & recreation hall and a stage. The architectural design concept was to create a blend of both modern and traditional architectures in order to help this alien volume and program blend in with both of the surrounding culture and urban fabric.
Overlooking the Mediterranean, the Skaff residence covers an area of 650 sqm with unparalleled sea views. The design encompasses the client's aspirations through providing a luxurious yet contemporary home. Light ceilings & floors were used to make the apartment feel more spacious, and wood textured walls were used to provide warmth. Client requirements were collected and their needs assessed in order to design and furnish the 4 bedrooms, 2 living spaces, dining space, kitchen, 6 bathrooms and laundry area.
