"The Yabani project was built to house a Japanese restaurant and bar on a 285 s.q.m site located at the edge of the Damascus road on the former demarcation line that separated East and West Beirut.

DW5 is a Design production facility for developers, architects, planners and designers providing the necessary resources to support the successful development of design projects. The workshop is an open platform for a growing number of collaborators.
The company is based in Beirut, Lebanon and has developed an international reputation among professionals by successfully assisting designers and architects on various high profile missions locally and abroad.
DW5 is located in a 700 square meters industrial loft in the Quarantaine sector, Beirut, Lebanon. The Studio is essentially one large open space free of subdivisions equally shared by all architects.
Our teams engage in assisting the production of various scale projects, from early planning phase to construction supervision. A wide range of supporting skills underpins the work of the practice, including model making, CAD drawing and visualization, and in-house audio-visual, photographic and printing systems.
The main drive of the practice is design excellence and precision, achieved through close collaboration with clients, designers and specialists - from structural and environmental engineers to cost consultants. Management of cost and time is an important priority to us which has resulted in delivering award winning projects challenged by demanding budget and schedules.
