Beit Beirut by ruthmouch

Beit Beirut

Beit Beirut was designed in 1924 for the Barakat family. During the Civil War it suffered fire, was partially destroyed and abandoned and then used by snipers as it was conveniently located on The Green Line. Owned by Beirut Municipality it underwent an $18 million renovation with French technical assistance. Currently it's a museum/exhibition space/cultural centre/war memorial. The mix of old and modern, the beautiful original architecture and the saving of this heritage house made a visit with Maaike to a photography exhibition a lovely treat.
I love your incredibly unique perspective for this photo. It is interesting to see. It must be a fabulous building to visit with it’s old and new architecture and the remnants of its place in the Civil War as evidenced by the pock marks on the walls
