d’olive is a quality oriented brand of olive by-products, with a drive towards a worldwide appreciation of Lebanese olive trees. This project follows a journey going into the heart of an aging olive tree and reimagining some of its notions in simple pure forms that create tension in the empty spaces between them. Entering the project visitors experience a shift from a reserved and defensive exterior environment into a more vulnerable and engaging interior. This fragile skin framing the central courtyard allows in filtered natural sunlight. Visitors are invited on a ramp experience through the different steps of processing olives until bottling and packaging. The project also includes other public functions like an agricultural learning center, exhibition and bakery.
