Platau-renovated Wadi penthouse in Beirut’s Wadi Abu Jamil district is one the most unusual penthouses you’ll ever see. It’s not overly spacious or lavishly decorated, but its design is so full of creativity, you just have to see it for yourself. Taking advantage of pliability of wood, the architects went away from strict lines and proportions to create something completely different.
That mezzanine, to the side of the dining room, is a true architectural masterpiece. A white floating staircase is the first thing that catches the eye, but at a closer inspection, you can see its walls slide and curve off their usual straight course.
A metal staircase structure is a great contrast to the light wood that continues to clad a neighboring room. Dining room doors fit with the mezzanine design well. The wood element continues throughout the entire penthouse interior, in fact.
The rest of the rooms being less dramatic only strengthens the impression from the mezzanine. Kitchen, bedroom, and home cinema look positively contemporary, though a dining room boasts a statement table and a chandelier. Atop the curious mezzanine, there is a small media area with more storage that neatly takes every form those curvy walls create.
