365 Days Project #15

If one had to describe the traditional Lebanese building, one would need to go far from raw, freshly built structures without finishes, tall apartment buildings so typical to Europe and common in densely populated areas in Beirut, or modern villas built in accordance with architectural trends. The typical Lebanese house, whether built 100 years ago or in recent years, bears striking similarities when it comes to design and external finish.

Today’s photos are probably the best examples of well designed and preserved homes in my area, and by no means gems or exceptions. At the moment Lebanon is undergoing a great deal of construction and reconstruction after the last war in the summer of 2006. Unfinished buildings are abundant everywhere. Most of them strive to look in the end just like those below.
