In an attempt to create a unique and impressive landmark near the old city of Tripoli, Burj Bulayla was inspired to reflect the traditional elements of the region with a contemporary twist, while corresponding to the location by being tilted to face the street corner for better exposure and stronger presence.
Consisting of two square towers of 20 to 24 floors, this project houses the offices for an engineering company, with the higher tower intended for a bank. The ground and mezzanine floors are used as entrance lobbies and have banking services as well as a flexible open showroom in the lower tower with the upper floors having semi open plans for office areas.
