The development was conceived as a natural extension to the popular Saifi Village and comprises a cluster of one office and four residential buildings. Designed for people leading a contemporary lifestyle, it offers a variety of services and conveys a discrete sense of luxury. A landscaped courtyard that runs through the five units serves as a relaxation space for tenants and integrates archeological finds revealed during the excavation works.
The apartment buildings are townhouse-like units characterized by space, light, calm, and comfort: a quiet haven in a great urban location. They incorporate a wide range of living options, including large lofts, mini lofts with a combined living-working space, ground floor maisonettes with private gardens, central hall apartments, and a variety of penthouses with generous terraces. The fifth unit houses quality serviced offices, and its difference in end use is reflected in its cladding, which has an inner Corten façade covered with triangular fin louvers and urban windows, creating a suspended garden.

Designed by Nabil Gholam Architects, the 178 Saifi development
is envisioned as a natural extension to the popular Saifi
Village and comprises a cluster of one office and four residential
buildings. A courtyard landscaped by Vladimir Djurovic Landscape
Architecture runs through the five units and serves as a relaxation
space for tenants. The courtyard design also integrates
archeological finds unearthed during the excavation works.
The residential buildings are townhouse-like units characterized
by space, light, calm, and comfort. They incorporate a wide
range of living options, including large lofts, mini lofts with a combined
living-working space, ground-floor maisonettes with
private gardens, central hall apartments, and a variety of
penthouses with generous terraces. The office building offers
serviced offices and distinguishes itself from the living
spaces through its outer appearance:
an inner Corten facade covered in triangular fin louvers
and urban windows, creating a suspended garden.
