120-Meter Beirut Terraces Residential Tower Completes
Beirut, Lebanon – 18 April 2017

Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron have completed a 120-meter-tall high-rise in the heart of Beirut featuring a series of layered floor plates that float above the ground, referring to the layers of the city’s rich and tumultuous history.

Called Beirut Terraces, the project was first proposed in 2009 as part of a master plan to rehabilitate the area. It features offices and residential units in the vicinity of a new yacht marina. The design approach is based on five principles: layers and terraces; inside and outside; vegetation; views and privacy; and light and identity.

''The structure and appearance of the proposed building are informed with an awareness and respect for the city’s past, as well as the self-confidence and optimism of contemporary Beirut,'' said Herzog & de Meuron.

Beirut Terraces is designed as a vertically layered building, which means slabs of varying sizes allow for interplay between openness and privacy that fosters flexible living between inside and outside. The high-rise creates a stratified structure and is distinguished by projecting or set back living areas that generate terraces and overhangs, light and shadow, places of shelter, and exposure.

The mix of apartments, comprising different sizes and types including multi-story duplexes, are distributed throughout the building, offering a variety of conditions to meet each tenant’s needs and providing each level with a unique identity. The apartments generally consist of three areas: a public reception area, a private living space, and a service area.

The walls of the apartments are not structural and their arrangement is open to future flexibility. Each quarter of the tower has its own lobby with elevators serving no more than two apartments at a time. For greater efficiency, two lobbies share service elevators, MEP risers, and fire escapes.
