Askdeco adds warmth and colour to the industrial footprint of a residence in Beirut, demonstrating how human nature reacts to eclectic warmth – a sentiment that is universal and timeless! |
With breath-taking vistas overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, ancient Roman ruins on one side, and the vibrancy of downtown Beirut’s colourful streets on the other, this 700 sq. m modern family duplex owned by a young couple with a baby is dotted with a warmth born out of an industrial chic décor.
Nisrine Nasr, co-founder and interior designer at Askdeco collaboratively evolves the idea of the client’s initial vision for an industrial-styled home into a more refined and liveable space by accomplishing a harmonious balance between the muted and monotone colour palettes of hard architecture with random bursts of vibrant colour.
Earth colours, concrete textured walls, gunmetal finishes, Mediterranean grey marble flooring and brown wood bring the industrial design elements into play, while wood and metal infuse a cosier design into its core. Carefully selected works of art, eclectic furniture and furnishings, and unique accessories craft out a chic style statement.
Divided into two very distinct atmospheres, the public upper level is designed for fun and relaxation, reflecting the client’s lifestyle, with a reception area capable of hosting gatherings away from the bedroom areas. It features a cigar lounge, a bar and an activity room, with the latter featuring a high-end billiards and contemporary football table.
Connecting the two levels, a magnificent cage-like spiral staircase serves as a transition, descending to a decidedly more intimate spaces featuring bedrooms, a contemporary kitchen and a family living room featuring comforts such as a sofa and daybed. The space’s lower level also features a main bathroom that is far from ordinary, with a glass bathtub and free-standing bathtub mixer that serves as the centrepiece of an ambiance designed for total relaxation.
“Well-designed spaces function effortlessly and enhance the quality of life of those who occupy them,” explains Nasr. A dictum that our ongoing special echoes! check out the visuals on indiaartndesign.com
