BLC Headqurter in Beirut, Lebanon by Hapsitus Architects

BLC Bank Beirut began a new departure in 2007 with a different administration, an impetus that gave rise to rapid growth and imposed the need for a new headquarters. The competition design brief required a building that would be a landmark in the urban texture of Beirut.
The presence of the existing building at the corner of the site was an enigma. It occupied a key corner position of the site, and was required by the client to be incorporated within a new design. With the ‘landmark’ concept as a driving force, Hapsitus proposed a solution created by the cantilevering of a new structure above the existing structure to make an urban gate addressing the city.
