The Bachoura District was ravaged by the Lebanese Civil War, with bullet holes and visible destruction changing the landscape of the area, that once buzzed vibrantly with life and business ventures. Today, the face of the Bachoura District is buzzing to a different beat – that of the Beirut Digital District (BDD).
Existing on the demarcation line separating East and West Beirut, BDD is rebuilding the area, while preserving national heritage. This project is part of BDD’s core values to preserve and restore existing Lebanese heritage while integrating modern and sustainable construction concepts.
In their latest collaboration with Live Love, BDD showcases the restoration project of the historic St. Georges Church, that was devastated by the war. Built in 1878, the St. Georges Church will be completely renovated by the end of 2020 (construction works were kicked off in 2017). Its unique architecture has already received international acclaim, awarded by ‘The American Institute of Architects Los Angeles’.
