Convivium IV
1 2 3 4
6,000 m2

Our intention was to introduce a new scale of residential urban development in the traditional neighbourhood of Gemmayzeh that allows a close proximity of old and new to exist without compromising either, but enhancing both.
Accessed from a private road, Convivium IV comprises a renovated traditional town house and four new duplexes located in a contemporary building adjacent to it. The restored house accommodates a private gym and a spa area, while the eight-floors building provides suspended gardens overlooking the preserved neighbourhood. Duplexes are similar in area to traditional houses that make up the charm of Gemmayzeh, but allow for a modern and open habitation which reflects a modern lifestyle.
