Beit Ghouyoum / Maison des Nuages

Renovation of a three courtyard Ottoman palace (1750) in the Old City of Damascus. The Old City, within the perimeter of the Roman wall, is classified by the United Nation as a World Heritage site. In its center lies the Temple of Jupiter, whose entrance can be found in the main courtyard of the building.
In 2006, Guillaume Credoz bought an old Ottoman house in the Medina of Damascus with the intention of turning it into workshops and international artist's residences in 2010.
The house will contain: a ceramic workshop (currently working in Montreal), a forge, a photo lab, a 3D lab with a rapid-prototyping machine, an etching workshop, a complete wood and fiberglass main workshop.
These workshops will be offered for common use and participation with the intention to bridge young Syrian talents with international confirmed artists & designers.
Architecture + Tech-Arts + Sculpture + Design.
The house will share multiplicity of programs; artists from various countries will have the opportunity to come and encounter the Middle-East and produce.
Using the workshops, and with the help of students\young artists, they will produce artworks, installations and performances, to exhibit and bring back to their country in order to start a dialog between cultures. Some artists\designers could also come and give workshops courses.
Some techniques, like Damascus steel, will be performed and passed onto Young Syrian craftsmen. The hope is this place becomes a connecting hub for the artist community.
