The Warriors

Antonio Signorini

Given its location in the recently reconstructed Beirut Central District, Samir Kassir Square acts as a prominent gateway, welcoming people to the heart of this reborn city. The challenge of this project was to create a quiet refuge on a limited piece of land surrounded by buildings, while addressing the prominent street frontage that it occupies. In essence, to become a small escape dedicated to the city and its people. Inspired by the existence of historic Ficus trees that have withstood the test of time and witnessed all that has passed before them, the concept begins to unfold.
