Brut Architects brings monotone style to Fosters + Partners-built Beiruit flat

Published: 15 August 2019 - 4:59 a.m.

Boutique design firm Brut Architects has finished a muted and monotone residential apartment in 3Beirut, the first tower built by Fosters + Partners in Lebanon.

The contemporary 500m² apartment, designed by Brut Architects, is situated in the 120m-tall, limestone-clad tower, located in the dynamic heart of Downtown Beiruit.

The Beirut-based practice was formed in 2016 by co-founders Hassan Malle, an architect, and interior design architect Mohammad-Fouad Naccache. They have worked on residential and hospitality projects in Beirut and New York.

The 3B Apartment in Downtown Beirut has the company’s quintessentially contemporary style.

It fuses a colour palette of white and grey with touches of brushed brass. This can been seen in the vertical and horizontal bars running up and down the marble-cladded wall the television is mounted on. Below this is a horizontal floating shelve made from tinted glass and timber.

Marble and metal is complemented with rich dark woods.

The walls are painted dark grey and accentuate the impressionist-style art on the walls.

The apartment has an open-plan layout. After walking through the door, you step into the sea-facing living and dining area. This has an oval marble table set against a large window, offering views of the Lebanese hillside.

Brut Architect wanted to maximise the views of the Mediterranean Sea as well, and created a seating area overlooking the ocean. This lounge area is furnished with sculpture and pottery.
