I was passing by Haret Sakhr on Sunday when I noticed the old Kataeb house with a Phoenician ship on its roof is being renovated. I am not sure if the building still belongs to Kataeb, but it’s been there for more than 15-20 years maybe without anyone ever using it.
It’s good to know they are planning to preserve it because it’s one of a kind building. In fact I don’t recall ever seeing a house with a ship on its roof aside from this one.
They should turn the place into a touristic site or maybe a night club or restaurant even.
There is actually a building near Ramlet il Bayda in Beirut that has a ship on it. It looks weird.
Haha, yes, I think it’s “la presidentielle”
It’s a shame to see that kind of symbolic(not even symbolic it’s literal)architecture in Lebanon.
I think this building is a joke and i bet that it wasn’t designed by an architect.
