‘With this house, we have a second story, and that’s unusual,’ says Scott Eccleston, director of operations at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, Arkansas.

Located in Wadi Abou Jamil at the western periphery of Beirut’s city center, the design of this 1,200-square-meter penthouse by MiaSKAMLA was primarily driven by the desire to create airy spaces that would unite comfort with a minimalist feel, while simultaneously embracing the home’s superb geographic location by taking full advantage of its peripheral views. The main entrance opens up into a vast living room, a formal reception space, as well as the dining room. Fully-glazed and unpartitioned, this area enjoys natural light and floor-to-ceiling views of the sea, city and Mount Lebanon.
