Assaha Kuwait (a peep inside)
When we talk about the Lebanese house we enter a world of sunshine and light, of color both subtle and vivid, of simplicity of form and elegance of proportions. We enter the lives of a community that lived in simplicity and in harmony with its surroundings. The rugged nature of the landscape reflects the architecture and design. Gently sculpting the landscape into terraces, they were able to cultivate the land for their living. Inspired by the beauty of their land, they created an architecture from its stones and timbers both simple and refined. The relationship of architecture to nature is the central force in the design of any Lebanese house.
The Story behind this place :
Abu Ahmad, this villager who built his experience on wandering between villages and cities, spreading his village’s aroma as “yards” around the globe, holding this issue as a message of fildelity, raising it as a slogan and confirming it as an identity, is building his dream by stone, and narrating stories in a different way, turning the pages of history with a varied rich heritage. Abu Ahmad, our Lebanese arab village globetrotter, held his saddlebage, full of goods for a new village, or a new “saha” (yard), and he laid down the rules in Kuwait longing in it to the squares of his childhood, where Kuwait is the hometown of the idea-maker, the designer and the executer of the project,and Kuwait was his first launch in the paths of life, to return back to where he left it, not to mention being a country of civilization, openness, development, and elegance… in addition to his unforgetable friendships and memories there…and because it is “Kuwait”, the meeting point and the axis of cooperation and goodness, for her embrace of our brothers and relatives that left their fingerpints in Lebanon generally, and in “al-mabarrat charitable association establishments” specifically, and they had a special rank in the heart of the late “assayed mohammad hussein fadlullah”, for their blessed efforts and being on the top of the goodness and giving list… And in Kuwait, Assaha-Lebanese Traditional Village stood as a witness on time, as her elder sisters did in Lebanon, Qatar, Sudan, and London… without forgetting the renewal of the pledge and covenant to travel to new worlds…
