The project, a factory situated in the southern end of Byblos, provides artisanal jam to the inhabitants of the area and its surroundings. The design concept revolves around courtyards that act as both junctions between spaces of similar or different functions, as well as communal in-between spaces of their own. Such spaces, coupled with the aspect of terracing, create strategic stopping points along a continuous exterior circulation around the factory. Another significant facet of the project is its environmental contribution. Not only do the courtyards play a functional role, but so are they collectors of cool air and ventilation inducers, on top of other strategies. Hence, the project portrays a combination of production, commerce, sociability, and sustainability.
