BLANKPAGE is Patrick Mezher, Karim Nader and Walid Ghantous. Founded in the year 2000, BLANKPAGE is a collaborative design studio of architects, urban designers and artists. Driven by the desire to produce architecture of high quality and craftsmanship, the studio’s goal is to start every project from a blank page, i.e. without preconception of form or style.
The studio’s credo is that each project should respond to the specificities of the context it stems from and that, driven by the symbolic and historical manifestations which are present in the place and the particularities of the given program, the resulting building will be an event that moves the city and its inhabitants into a novel experience of space. The growing portfolio of projects tackles a variety of programs in the contexts of Lebanon and the Arab World. BLANKPAGE’s experience ranges from public buildings (cineplexes, museum, night clubs) to residential and commercial developments.
In 2011, BLANKPAGE was declared winner of two competitions, SEF 355 office complex in Sin el Fil commissioned by Express International, as well as TRIADE, a multi-use project commissioned by MEDPROPERTIES and M-Tower S.A.L. In 2012, BLANKPAGE was declared the laureate of the Kfardebiane country club competition amongst a panel of twelve competing firms.
The uniqueness of BLANKPAGE’s villa propositions, have earned them a solid reputation as specialists of bespoke residential solutions.
