COZY, INDUSTRIAL

Luxury Living in Beirut's Heart

With a global portfolio of completed projects including luxurious homes, private yachts and commercial environments, Askdeco, a full service design firm based in Lebanon, recently completed its One Oak 3&4 B2 residential project in the dynamic heart of downtown Beirut, a city home to world renowned fashion designers, art galleries, performing arts venues and trendy bistros and cafes. One Oak 3&4 B2 is a 700m2 modern family duplex owned by a young couple with a baby, says Nisrine Nasr, co founder and interior designer at Askdeco. When we first met with the client, their vision was of an industrial style of home but, over the course of the project, that idea collaboratively evolved into a vision of a more refined and livable space.

In the case of One Oak 3&4 B2, the creative process began with Askdecoa presenting the client with plans for an industrial feel with a luxurious twist. Earth colors, concrete textured walls, gunmetal finishes, Mediterranean grey marble flooring and brown wood bring the industrial design elements into play. While maintaining the industrial feel embraced by the client, Askdeco infused a cozier design into its core, substituting wood and metal in some instances to produce a homier effect. One Oak 3&4 B2 succeeds in achieving a harmonious balance between the muted and monotone color palettes of hard architecture and random bursts of vibrant color.
