Synopsis

An outstanding collection of contemporary residential, commercial and public architecture by Lebanese architect Simone Kosremelli. Features stunning photography, detailed plans and sections, and insightful descriptive text by Sylvia Shorto, Assistant Professor at the American University of Beirut. 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. AUTHOR: Simone Kosremelli was born in Beirut in 1950.

She received a Bachelor of Architecture degree from the School of Architecture and Design at the American University of Beirut (1974), graduating with distinction. Her Master's degree in urban planning from Columbia University in New York (1977) was supported by a Fulbright scholarship. After working briefly as a freelance planner, Ms. Kosremelli opened her own architecture office in Beirut in 1981 and a branch office in the United Arab Emirates in 1990. She is also a part-time faculty member of the American University of Beirut. Ms. Kosremelli's clients are people who respect their traditions and their environment. Her designs have been published in international and local books and journals, including 'Mimar' (#41, Dec 1991) and 'The Phaidon Atlas of Contemporary World Architecture' (2002). Her designs can be found in Lebanon and the Gulf States.
