Welcome to our gallery showcasing the uniquely personal style of La Casa Belleza, a home interior designed by Beirut-based Vick Vanlian Architecture.
The designers state that the idea for this project was to mix vintage and urban, conjuring a unique character that leaves an impression on visitors. They wished to express the personalized story of the owner’s life journey.
In an effort to emphasis the lived-in, cultured feel of the house, a mix of white brick and concrete wall treatment finish was introduced, decorated with striking graffiti expressing the silhouette of Miles Davis and quoting Picasso: “all you can imagine is real.” Two multicolored patchwork rugs, a Bokja bench, and a center glass table with metal fan from an old Asian boat all come together to set the mood for the living space.
Exposed zinc pipes dominate the dining area, deployed as shelving. These are actual reused pipes, designed and produced by Vick Vanlian, as part of firm’s Re-Fuse collection. These works aim to re-cycle old building material for the purpose of minimizing waste. The dining area also includes a pair of Charbel Oun paintings and a lamp form Bouroullec Brothers. A London-style phone booth was placed to house the homeowners’ motorcycle helmets.
The open space is divided by a long multi drawer cabinet, separating the living area and indoor greenery space, adding to the exotic and eclectic feel of the house. This cabinet houses the television, allowing it to be hidden, or viewed from anywhere in the large open space.
We hope you enjoy this singular interior design as much as we do!
The living room area is dominated by contemporary brown leather sofa and matching armchair, around a natural wood table with black wheeled feet. Paintings hang on the wall next to one of several recycled industrial furniture pieces, a pipe-based lamp.
The white brick walls hold numerous detailed personal touches, like this Miles Davis “graffiti” and Picasso art print. The lush light toned sectional is populated with newsprint style throw pillows.
Here we see the sectional wrapping around an immense glass coffee table, with the dividing cabinetry at right, holding a cornucopia of drawers in varying sizes and colors.
Dining room set, with immense glass-top table standing beneath black recycled component chandelier, holds the pair of aforementioned paintings next to dark natural wood door.
Here we see a wide view of the entire open space, with the recycled zinc pipework shelving seen at left, phone booth helmet storage at center, and space-dividing cabinetry unit at right.
Looking closer, we see a large mural covering the far wall, with an array of sculptures and recycled furniture pieces scattered throughout.
In the “greenery” space, various bright teal pieces of furniture stand over a patchwork rug, with the large dividing cabinet defining the area.
The entire space features light marble flooring, with colored shading on the floor to ceiling windows at far end.
Low angle over the sectional and cabinetry reveals the layers of quirky vintage accoutrement that thoroughly define this interior.
The striking, wildly colorful bathroom features license plate walls, with a metal cylinder mirror frame over marble countertop with white vessel sink.
