Location: Aïshti By the Sea, Beirut, Lebanon
Size: 2,150 square feet / 200 square meters
Located in Beirut’s recently opened Aïshti by the Sea shopping complex, the Art People Restaurant is a visually arresting space. Occupying 200 square meters, the restaurant’s focal point is a full-height bar featuring gold mesh and backlit onyx. Travertine was used for the floors and wall accents. The concrete walls complement the gold metal, mesh and travertine, their clean lines creating the perfect setting for the stunning artwork. Gold screens are placed in intervals along the floor-to-ceiling windows creating a shadow while still permitting a view of the sea, as well as in the entry to define the area. The overall effect is elegant and stylish.
