Plot # 1063 (R2)

Beirut, Lebanon
Under Construction 2012

Plot # 1063 is located in the northeastern zone of Beirut-Medawar, a geographically strategic location that benefits from the present northeastern development of the city. The site is valued due to its location within the expansion of the Gemmayze and Mar Mikhael quarters’ known for their residences of historical character. The neighborhood is also served by the Charles Helou Avenue linking Beirut to the national coastal highway.
The site is located at the intersection of two roads. The respective setbacks created allowed for a 50-meter-high building. The building is divided into North and South apartments on the ground, 1st, and 8th floors. The ground floor is occupied by two townhouses of double height, with their respective gardens and parking spaces. The apartments on the first and eighth floors are duplex lofts. From the second to seventh floors the apartments merge to allow for large simplexes at single height.
On the ninth and tenth floor the 320-square-meter penthouse (setback to respect the legal building envelope) with its 160-square-meter terrace and exposed swimming pool benefit from 360-degree views of the coastline, the port, its neighboring quarters, and Mount Lebanon to the North.
A unique instance is created in the building at the entrance to each apartment by a generous outdoor, covered platform. The platform holds an olive tree in the center or a void at alternating levels.
