In the recent years, design has evolved to take into consideration personal sensibilities and is not defined by diktats, allowing for new and exciting expressions of style. This movement in style has found expression in the way we design and decorate our spaces. Much has been written on the different effects of colours on people’s sense of well-being and colour design is of vital importance in the creation of a pleasant, ambient environment. The January issue of byouteit provides some interesting projects full of colours and inspirational designs. We put spotlight on the opening of Key Aparthotel in Beirut with Distinctive interior designed by GM Architects. You will see architect Rabih barbar evoke charm inside two restaurant projects. We go deep with renowned architect Riad Bou Ghannam to know more about Majdolin palace and sama aramoun apartments. The issue also features some interesting and awarded projects from around the world. All these make this issue worth a read.

GM Architects infuses artistic and cosmopolitan to create a serene urban oasis The Key ApartHotel’s distinctive interior designed by GM Architects offers a new take on luxury accommodation in the heart of one of Beirut’s most fashionable neighborhoods in the cultural sector of the city. It provides guests with a sophisticated place to call home during their stay for weekend breaks or longer business visits. The two-year project is now in full use after its completion in June 2016. The brief of the project detailed the need to attract both national and international guests making them feel at ease while also infusing a twist of creativity and fun into the design.
The aparthotel is located in a new residential and corporate location surrounded by high-end art galleries and artistic workshops. The design process GM Architects implemented reflects the neighborhood’s feel by creating a relaxing and vibrant metropolitan retreat in-line with its cultural and urban context. The Key Aparthotel was designed to cater for both family and business long stay travel all year round. The ambiance offersa relaxing environment that creates a dialogue within the lively environment. The owners want guests to feel connected to the city while also feeling serene in their immediate surroundings.
ARCHITECT NIKO KAPA
Dubai Maritime Museum & Research Relating to both the sea and the city and in constant dialogue between them, the building is an extension of the city to the sea and vice-versa. Conceived as a continuation and a transition through the wide public space, the building dives into the ocean and merges with it. It develops as a triangular sharp form, which concentrates the public routes to the museum, through an inviting shape that draws visitors to the entrance and distributes them to the interior. The museum itself is an artifact, an artificial underwater environment organized under an immense glass roof that has been designed in order to give the maximum view of the ocean and intensify the feeling of diving into the seabed. By optimizing the maritime-themed environment and combining it with breathtaking underwater views, the museum reflects in a sincere manner its function.

an artificial underwater environment organized under an immense glass roof The building is simultaneously a vessel that supports the idea of the journey. Interior space is organized through cascading platforms that develop in a successive and continuous manner, allowing visitors to have a panoramic and clear overview of the whole museum’s interior, under a «water roof». Generous internal height allows the perception of wide interior views and the display of artifacts of significant scale. Inside this wide space, collection is divided in entities such as marine life, marine technology, supervisory material, interactive educational and experimental exhibits, aquariums, video projections and digital representations as well as underwater photography exhibitions.
