The civil war left a lot of houses in Beirut destroyed, and new buildings replaced many of the ones that survived. Henry Lucien is passionate about the architecture of Beirut’s traditional houses. So, he found a way to preserve this heritage. He collected windows, arches, doors, and columns from 45 destroyed Beirut homes and used them to build a house in Batroun. Even though he is not an architect or a painter, his passion drove him to create a masterpiece that cherishes and protects the Lebanese architecture. Henry works in Beirut so he couldn’t spend a lot of time in his house in Batroun. So, he redesigned his apartment in Achrafieh using, again, parts of destroyed homes in Beirut.
