herzog & de meuron: beirut terraces


plans have been unveiled for ‘beirut terraces’, a new residential development by swiss duo herzog & de meuron. situated in the heart of beirut, the project was revealed to celebrate the commencement of construction. it is the first residential development by herzog & de meuron in the region. the concept behind ‘beirut terraces’ offers a revival of the urban lifestyle integrating indoor and outdoor living spaces. the residential tower provides the platform for a vertical village where community living and sustainability are key design features. the light and dynamic form of the building stands out to differentiate itself from neighboring towers. the tower will have 130 different apartments, each offering a differentiated living experience including luxury apartments and townhouses.

  • well- i donnt think its nice and fantastic on a herzog demeuron level- its just another failure like steven holes project which is a few 100 meter away or even jean nouvelles tower. well i guess if something watnts to be a landmark let it be one espeecialy if a developer highers ppl like H&D . but alas due to our building codes and regulation everything will get errected as a solid volume . my point is goo tottally crazy use technologies tha we donnt have or donnt do it cause any architect can do the same volumes and concepts but donnt have the name- i simply am sad of what is happening here lots to say lot to talk about
