Located within the historic area of Wadi Abu Jmeel, in the heart of Beirut City, this luxury residential complex consists of a cluster of apartment blocks with distinguished articulation and a skillful composition of levels, sitting on top of three basement levels of parking and services. The design promotes an outward character by the use of several balconies each commanding a different scene, appreciating the built and natural environment of the city. The façade is also treated with different layers by using a stone envelope over the stucco walls. Moreover; the design looks inwards to the interlinked plazas that seem to evolve almost organically. The design achieves a unique synthesis of modern technology and materials with a strong traditional Beirut architectural style.
