Casa Batroun - The Story of an Eco-Friendly House

PRESENTED ON SEP 10, 2014
IN BEIRUT @ VOL 20

Maha Nasrallah and Maya Karkour share the adventurous experience of turning an old house into an exemplary, award winning eco-friendly home. Green magic, if you will! 

Taking something old and crumbling away, and refurbishing it and enhancing what is already there, is a step closer to eco-friendly living and homes. Reusing and recycling wood, and using natural materials, Maha and Maya were able to create and inspire more to do the same.
