THE KEEPER’S HOUSE
reem abou ibrahim
The thresholds are key spaces that control how one roams in the house and discovers it. They have the ability to differentiate between spaces while still connecting them.
The keeper is physically separated from the visitors and even though he lives in a threshold free space separate from the house, once he steps into the perimeter of the house he too will be subjected to some thresholds but will still have privileges over the visitor. The keeper will be able to wander around in elevated spaces that allow for visual connection to all the rooms; as he walks around, he will be watching and talking to people about traditional Lebanese architecture and its beauty.
