ONE OF MAR MIKHAEL’S MAIN CHARACTERISTICS IS ITS ABUNDANCE OF COURTYARDS LEAD BY URBAN CORRIDORS. MOST OF THESE COURTYARDS IN THIS PARTICULAR NEIGHBORHOOD ARE PRIVATIZED OR SEMI-PUBLIC. THE GIVEN SITE IS SECLUDED FROM THE PRIMARY ROADS OF MAR MIKHAEL AND THE ONLY ACCESS TO IT IS BY A PEDESTRIAN AND A TERTIARY ROAD. IT IS OPEN TO A MORE PEDESTRIAN FRIENDLY ZONE AND HAS THE QUALITIES OF A PUBLIC SPACE. THUS, THE CONCEPT IS TO CREATE AN URBAN HUB THAT IS OPEN TO THE PUBLIC AND CONNECTED TO THE MAIN STREETS OF MAR MIKHAEL. THIS URBAN HUB WILL ALSO BE AN URBAN FARM. IT WILL PROVIDE THE PRACTICE OF CULTIVATING, AND DISTRIBUTING FOOD AROUND THE NEIGHBORHOOD. AND SINCE MAR MIKHAEL IS A HEAVILY POPULATED NEIGHBORHOOD INCLUDING RESIDENTIAL AND COMMERCIAL AREAS, THEY CAN ALL BENEFIT FROM THIS FARM. THE PRODUCTS WILL ALSO BE SOLD TO THE SURROUNDING RESTAURANTS, AND THE FARMER’S MARKET. THE FARM WILL PRODUCE ORGANIC AND SEASONAL FRUITS AND VEGETABLES FOR THE RESIDENTS AROUND THE AREA.

LIVE/WORK SPACES

2.2 2.3

3. 4.

LIVE/WORK SPACES BLUR THE LINE BETWEEN PERSONAL AND WORK LIFE. THERE’S BARELY ANY INCENTIVE TO SWITCH MODES, SO YOU HAVE TO BE DISCIPLINED. IF YOU LIVE AND WORK IN THE SAME SPACE YOU NEED SOMEWHERE YOU CAN GET OUT, AND NOT FEEL TRAPPED. THUS, THE LIVE/WORK LIFESTYLE SHOULD FOCUS ON THE COMMUNAL LIVING FOR ARTISTS TO BE ABLE TO WORK, LIVE, GET INSPIRED AND COME TOGETHER ALL IN A SINGLE SPACE BUT HAVING THEIR OWN PERSONAL LIVING SPACE AND PROFESSIONAL WORKSPACE AT THE SAME TIME. THUS, OUTSIDE OF THAT PRIVATE SECTORS, THE ARTIST WILL HAVE A COMMUNAL SPACE TO GATHER AROUND AND GET ACQUAINTED. THE DESIGN REQUIRES AN INNOVATIVE APPROACH TOWARD SPATIAL ORGANIZATION TO ACCOMODATE THE LIVING SPACES, AS WELL AS THE PUBLIC, COMMUNAL SPACES. THE MAJORITY OF THE COMMUNAL ASPECTS DO NOT OCCUR WITHIN THE BUILDING; RATHER THEY ARE PLACED ON THE GROUND FLOOR AND THE OUTDOOR AREAS. AND FOR THE LIVE/WORK SPACES, THERE ARE 3 SCENARIOS. THE LIVING UNITS, THEIR COMMON WORKING UNITS AND THE WORK/LIVE SPACES WHICH ARE COMBINED IN ONE UNIT.

THE BOUTIQUE HOTEL & ART GALLERY IS LOCATED IN MONOT, ONE OF THE MOST HISTORICAL NEIGHBORHOODS IN BEIRUT. AFTER THE DEMOLISHMENT OF THE PREVIOUS RESIDENTIAL BUILDING DURING THE CIVIL WAR, THE PLOT HAS REMAINED EMPTY AND ABANDONED FOR YEARS. THE SURROUNDING BUILDINGS ARE TYPICAL TRADITIONAL LEBANESE HOUSES WHICH MAKE THE GUESTS FEEL MORE FAMILIAR TO THE LEBANESE CULTURE. THE PLAN OF THE BOUTIQUE HOTEL AND ART GALLERY WAS DERIVED FROM THE PREVIOUS EXISTING RESIDENTIAL BUILDING WHICH FOLLOWED A CERTAIN RHYTHM. THE PREVIOUS PLAN FOLLOWED A GRID WHICH WAS RECONSIDERED AND THUS EXTENDED TO THE ENTIRE PLOT LIMIT TO CREATE THE NEW PLAN. THE SAME RHYTHM WAS ALSO APPLIED ON THE MAIN FAÇADE OF THE PROJECT. THE MAIN FUNCTIONS OF THE PROJECT WERE DIVIDED ACCORDING TO THE NEW DERIVED GRID. THE BOUTIQUE HOTEL HAS 10 GUEST ROOMS, MEETING ROOMS, COMMON ROOM AND AN ART GALLERY.

TEAM MEMBERS GRACE AARAJ JIRAIR MAGHAKIAN JOSEPH KADDISSI BRIEF DISMECO srl - a leading company in Europe in the disposal and recycling of electrical equipment - has been pledging for years in creating a more sustainable future through a more widespread action in reusing and treating complex waste. DISMECO knows well that a better world is only possible with an increasingly widespread environmental awareness. That is why DISMECO, thinking about new generations, aims at creating in its building the first and most excellent school of the world dedicated to the culture of ecology and sustainability. DISMECO owns an abandoned building, which consists of 5.000 sqm referable to Pierluigi Nervi belonging to the area of the former Paper factory of Marzabotto. In this facility DISMECO aims at designing its own didactic centre to become the most acknowledged international reference in research, training and development of sustainable disciplines. This will be possible thanks to the cooperation of numerous and valuable partners. How to transform an old paper factory into a facility to become the symbol and cornerstone of ecology and environmental compatibility? On this question YAC lays the foundations for Green Academy, the Unindustria competition which aims at transforming an industrial architecture into the best training centre inspired by the principles of green economy and sustainable development. A high-level school, a ludic-experiential centre for children and a business incubator for environmentally-friendly start-ups. In one of the most innovative industrial areas, regarding recovery and disposal of waste, the “recycling” of an architecture will enable the creation of the first and most important school of ecology and sustainability aimed at transforming the building into a global epicentre for a more responsible society and a more sustainable future.
