Situated in Beirut’s Central
District, in a particularly sensitive location, the project’s
requirements were to maintain a traditional architectural character.
This led us to: 1) Reformulate the existing typologies into
contemporary architectural language. 2) Preserve the building’s unity
despite the differences in the adjacent constructions and the
complexity of its functional chart (luxury residential flats, office
and commercial space). 3) Design an urban landmark at the corner of
both streets facing Bank Audi HQ.
Although, according to the client, our project was “the best”, local
political issues resulted in the project being done by others.
