A comprehensive project, which required the development of a mixed-use tower. With residential, office, and cultural floor areas that needed to be reached, as well as a height requirement of 90 meters, this tower, located in the up and coming area of Sioufi in Beirut was adjacent to one of the few green open spaces in the city “Sioufi Gardens”. Sioufi, acting as a transitional zone, from an industrial to a more residential one is following the trend of gated communities in Beirut where minimal interaction occurs between residents and their surroundings. The tower, with its mixed uses hopes to challenge this ongoing phenomenon through creating a system of interlocking modules with different programs, allowing them to be in constant visual interaction, while maintaining a certain degree of privacy. The cultural program in this case, is an urban planning museum that tackles the controversial growth of Beirut through its turbulent history, and is divided along the ground levels of the project, with a direct connection on many levels of the steep topography. The residential and office units connect to the ground floor and interlock on various levels creating terraces and allowing for views when needed. The challenge of this project is to maintain a realistic approach in terms of structural and mechanical systems, as well as creating a detailed facade system that is both functional and environmental, while focusing on ingenuity in terms of design.
