Lindal Cedar Homes. Beirut Terraces by Herzog & de Meuron. Swiss architects Herzog and de Meuron have designed this apartment tower with overhanging floor plates and terraces for Beirut, Lebanon.

Beirut Terraces by Herzog & de Meuron

Created as part of a wider masterplan to regenerate this area of the city that includes a marina, the building will comprise five different modular floor slabs used in varying combinations to create a mixture of overhangs and terraces. The building will have vegetation on the terraces to provide privacy and in the main entrance space to act as continuation of the neighbouring green boulevard.

The 116 metre-high structure will be supported by columns on a 14.7 metre regular grid, with each floor plate overhanging the glazing by at least 60 centimetres. 129 single, duplex and townhouse apartments will be available, arranged in different clusters throughout the tower. The project is due for completion in 2013. See all our stories about Herzog & de Meuron » All images © Herzog & de Meuron.
