Nestlé Waters Beirut Headquarters by Bernard Mallat Architects

Thursday, March 12th, 2015

Article source: Bernard Mallat Architects

The Nestlé Waters’offices & warehouse are located on a lot near the Beirut River. It is a project intended to function as a logistical platform for the company; a head office that doubles up as a primary storage and distribution site.

The scheme yields to the highly functional aspect of the warehouse by letting the vehicle path and turning radii carve its mass and produce a volume that maximizes size without losing efficiency. The office block acknowledges the importance of uninterrupted flow & sits atop the warehouse cantilevering above the access and creating a grand gate for the ubiquitous delivery truck.

Senteurs d’Orient Headquarters in Beirut, Lebanon by Atelier130

Thursday, March 12th, 2015

Article source: Atelier130

The concept behind the main headquarters of this luxury soap brand revolves around the actual soap bar. Inspired by the intricate packaging of the company’s soaps, the structure was first conceived as a box, sliced in half. Around the two distinct structures, a garden alive with greenery and a variety of aromas that linger and welcome visitors, reminiscent of the variety of soap scents. The first structure, where the company’s manufacturing plant is located, is covered by a woven metal wire mesh on top of a wall covered with the brand’s soap patterns. The second structure, which hosts the company’s offices, benefits from wide openings, protected from the sun thanks to sliding aluminum louvers that bring privacy to employees.
