Raed Abillama Architects’ Project Featured Amongst CNN’s Greenest Buildings Of 2011


CNN has put the global spotlight on a handful of buildings that have been recognized not only for their good looks but for their green credentials too.

Ixsir Winery - Basbina, Lebanon
Overlooking Basbina in northern Lebanon, this winery combines a restored 400-year-old feudal house with a modern-built, green-skinned (walls or roof of any building that have green capability e.g. they could have plants growing in them) structure. Designed by Raed Abillama Architects, its cellar spaces are buried within the ground as a thermal sponge, creating the needed equilibrium of temperature and humidity.
