Initially trained as an architect, Thierry Lemaire soon showed a great interest in decoration and furniture creation. Today he carries projects out all over the world and is dedicated to Holly Hunt and FENDI Casa. Thierry had the challenge of creating a mountain retreat for a couple with different personalities and taste. The husband Nicolas Garzouzi, a very rigorous and perfectionist men and his wife, Michèle a more free spirit with fun ideas. Both are also known as the owners of the Hermès license for Lebanon.
For Nicolas, the five-bedroom home is very much the realization of a dream. He once vowed that one day we’d build his own house in Lebanon remains of the civil war and that it would be a haven of peace.

This Curved table and transformable chairs by Massimiliano Locatelli are strong pieces that create an immediate impression. Thierry opted to work largely with just three materials—teak, bronze, and an Iranian travertine.
This Iranian titanium travertine floor was chosen for its grayish- beige color and its heavily veined patterns, almost looking like a landscape. The Ivano Redaelli swing chairs hanged in the small salon and the colorful Hermès wallpaper is a perfect mark of Michèle’s lively, and whimsical taste.

The landscaping of the garden was overseen by Vladimir Djurovic, who relocated the excavated rocks to create a screen for the pool by the home’s main entrance. The architecture was done by Raëd Abillama who decided to clad the ground-level façade with slabs of stone from the property. It took local artisans two years to assemble them.
Dominated by gnarled limestone formations, the immediate surroundings are moonlike and magical as the whole home. Garzouzi’s dream home became an exquisite representation of culture, history and a luxurious High-Style project that Room Decor Ideas couldn’t pass by.
