For the past 30 years, Simone Kosremelli has produced an architecture known for its character and its outstanding quality. Volumetrically complex internally, and visually coherent externally, her work is rooted in the Lebanese vernacular but it is not constrained by the past. Rather, her designs incorporate vernacular elements in modern arrangements, encouraging the natural continuation of a local architectural vocabulary and the preservation of time-honoured building techniques.
Kosremelli also designs simple yet carefully detailed interiors that combine hints of the past with modern materials for a contemporary outlook. This, the first monograph devoted to her firm's work, offers a beautifully illustrated tour through a selection of her most exceptional projects.
