In Damascus, The Ancient Is Now the Chic
Young Syrians Spark Gentrification Of 3,000-Year-Old Neighborhood

DAMASCUS, Syria -- The crowd begins filling the courtyard of Opaline, a trendy new restaurant, as late evening teeters toward early morning. Many arrive by golf cart, whisked through dim alleys to the wooden doors of a centuries-old Arab home within the walls of the Old City.
Opaline opened inside the carefully restored house two months ago with a glittering inauguration featured in the pages of Our Nights Out, Syria's answer to Vanity Fair. On a Thursday night, as a Cuban band plays salsa in one corner, revelers dine under elaborately painted cedar ceilings and dance near a courtyard fountain covered in floating lilies. But Basma Hiraki, a chic 33-year-old celebrating her birthday with a dozen friends, says she chose the restaurant more for its sense of history than for its hipness.
"This is something new, even though it is thousands of years old," said Hiraki, an immigration consultant. "In Arabic, we say that a person who has lost his roots must look for them. These are our roots."
The gentrification of a 3,000-year-old neighborhood is underway in one of the world's oldest inhabited cities, sending property values along ancient alleys soaring and turning a crumbling walled enclave into the most glamorous nightspot in the capital. Unlike other restoration projects driven by international organizations or tourism, the rejuvenation of Old Damascus is being done almost entirely by Syrians for Syrians, at great expense and with painstaking attention to historical detail.
Within rough Roman walls, more than 35 restaurants have opened in centuries-old Damascus homes over the past few years. More than 60 others, many of them badly damaged by time and the elements, are being restored for private or commercial use. Artists have opened studios in airy old houses, allowing the public to wander in and watch sculptures take shape. At the same time, gold merchants, sword smiths, perfume makers and spice vendors have remained part of the landscape, maintaining the cultural authenticity that the Syrians now moving inside the walls are searching for.
The renovation is being driven by a generation whose parents fled the tight quarters, poor public services and uneven alleys of the Old City decades ago for comfortable Western-style suburbs. Homes, battered by time and costly to maintain, were sold for a pittance. Many were filled with poor families seeking shelter. Now those homes are fetching hundreds of thousands of dollars, and their renovation often runs to twice that amount.
The trend is a sign of a rising private sector in a country where more than half the economy is controlled by the state. It also reflects an urgent desire to return to a place neglected for decades.
"Every year that we wait, it's like we've lost 10," said Thala Khair, 30, who is renovating a home in the Muslim Quarter. "Every Syrian comes down here to the souks every once in a while, and anyone who can help save it should start immediately."
The daughter of an oil engineer who frequently brought his family for strolls through the souks, or markets, Khair has lived most of her life in the city's suburbs. She is the successful owner of a private elementary school, and last year she paid roughly $500,000 for a renowned if dilapidated home near the Omayyad Mosque in the heart of the Old City.
The house at the end of a tiny alley off Al-Sawaff Street once belonged to a wealthy family of traders from Baghdad, and its former glory is evident in the mother-of-pearl inlay above arched doors, the filigreed woodwork and the lavishly painted walls and ceilings in the salons. The call of the muezzin at the Omayyad Mosque, its minaret visible above the roofline, has floated over the leafy courtyard for centuries.
But the owners abandoned the house in the 1950s, and seven families moved into its elegant rooms. They built walls and stairways, dividing the grounds among them. Today the woodwork is crumbling, plaster covers many of the 18th-century murals and chunks of carved stone have fallen into the courtyard.
"In the beginning, people looked at me and said, 'You are crazy. What are you thinking?' " Khair said. "Even my mother."
The project will take at least five years, and the first stage is to strip the house to its core. As work crews peel off plaster, tear out cement staircases and gather original stones and carved wood from the rubble, the original home is beginning to show through.
"This house was built down to the tiniest details, with nothing out of place," said Bassel Zurayk, the architect managing the project, who has done half a dozen smaller renovations and is now turning work away. "People here have tried the new architecture, and now they've woken up to the beauty of thi
Designed and finished my friends bakery dress that she wanted for Christmas. It took me forever because I am not used to making things for YOSD sized! D; And shes smaller than most of them too which makes me want to pull my hair out. The little Angell Studio negligee she got for her was still SEMI too big! D: Thats how bloody freaking tiny Chi is.
I don't use store bought patterns. (okay so I have some from undead threads or other places, but I think of them as blocks or starting patterns). This dress was completely constructed from my own patterns I draped onto her doll as well as measuring.
