Niched in an old red-tiled roof house in Beirut, Lei takes over the domestic. Spatially, the imposing bar carves its way through the house's rooms and becomes the main link between spaces and individuals. The bar makes use of its existing structure by exposing the old brick walls, and warm sandstone. The exposed glazed ceiling shows off the old wood truss structure holding the red tiled roof, allowing for a myriad of colors to take over the space.
