The site is located within the palaces and luxuriant gardens of the Sursock neighborhood in Ashrafieyh. We wanted to maintain that continuous green canopy. Sewing the 'hardscaped' areas with the green fabric, the site turns into a 'borderless' painting that is well integrated into the neighborhood. Spectacular flowering trees such as jacarandas and umbrella pine trees complement the existing landscape and provide shade to the terraces or benches created underneath. The prevailing foliage is silvery grey, and creates a dense screen to isolate and protect the southern garden i.e. reception area from the street.
