Deluxe Residential Tower
   back to selected projects > housing / residential
Project description
Located in the immediate vicinity of the rebuilt Beirut Central District, the plot had a potential magnificent view on the Mediterranean Sea, but on a diagonal axis, throughout the charming St-George’s bay. The aimed size of the flats and the density of the Built up Area, led us to propose a 24 storey’s tower facing the view and a smaller 10 storey’s building at the scale of the surrounding structures. Innovative approach with solar panels, sunshades and energy saving measures was considered for the whole project. We provided total flexibility in the rooms’ partitioning layout at all floors and a large Penthouse with its suspended swimming pool at the upper floors. Innovative materials such as plastic base panels and reconstituted stone cladding were proposed.
