Information about Cheikh Ramy el Khazen project: The Junkyard
Cheikh Ramy have created a restaurant\bar concept using a combination of containers, architecture & design, as well as some creativity with recycling and container. The location would be in the heart of Beirut squeezed in between old buildings, still carrying scars of war. The architecture review consists of 12 shipping containers spread over 1200sqm land, where some are stacked on top of each other to form a two-story venue, with an industrial lift on the side carrying people all the way up to the roof top. It consists of an interior area, rooftop and outdoor junk garden bar, accommodating up to 700 people. The decoration and the functional areas of the restaurant are all made up of reused/recycled/transformed materials like a 1936 tractor used as a façade for the bar, or the back of a garbage collector truck turned into a 12 person VIP dining area with a small private balcony. The end result is really appealing and one of a kind.
