Cantilevering balconies and terraces take their cue from the character of the old urban fabric while creating a vertical neighborhood rich with panoramic views of the downtown, the city and the sea. Shading louvres provide relief from abundant east and west sunlight while creating zones of outdoor privacy and facilitating a green screen. Located at the edge of development and demarcation, the project blurs lines while innovating on the Beirut high-rise typology.
