As we said earlier, the project highlight the role of Beirut as a tourist, commercial, and entertainment center while adding green spaces to the city on the ground level. The project consists of three non-identical towers on levels covered with limestone cladding all over its facade and includes shops and cafeterias at the ground level.

The towers compromise also many amenities such as a nursery, a gym center, and an exposition hall.

It is located in the central area of Beirut within the sector known as Solidere, an area known for its luxury buildings.

On the ground level, the design takes into consideration pedestrian traffic through the corridors connecting the historic center with the port on the south side, and the upper tower rises to the inside to provide a green courtyard. (As shown in the photo beside) The plot location of the project and due to its closeness to the seafront of the city has been provided with a relevant landscape study regarding managing and creating new walkways and public green areas. Thus, combining the lot with the sea dock is not a choice.

The project’s central foyer has been moved backward to leave space for a landscaped courtyard with plenty of plantations and waterfalls.

Luke Fox, a senior office assistant at Foster + Partners, said they are very pleased to accomplish the construction of 3Beirutwhich is the result of close cooperation between the client and Foster + Partners.

The north side of ‘3Beirut’ benefit from large glass windows, allowing the residents to enjoy the incredible views of the pier and the sea, whereas the southern side includes green roofs and balconies.
The difference in levels of the towers provides a significant amount of privacy for the residents.

Almost all the residential units have been sold and many facilities have been opened for the residents like the gym, the pool, and the automobile exhibition room.

Residential, Plot #1282- by Architect Bernard Khoury

Project No. 1282 is a residential development located in the northern suburbs of Beirut (Precisely An-Nahr District) next to an abandoned railway station, military buildings, uninhabited agricultural land, and a 30 m wide highway.

The area where the project is located is not yet allocated for housing (!) The architectural program consists of 95 industrial units (Loft), which means architecturally in the West: abandoned industrial spaces that are exploited and transformed into residential units, characterized by spaciousness, high ceilings, and glass facades.


The aim of the project was to obtain large housing at a low cost, a successful residential development that can be used in modern residential projects.

The area of the units ranges from 100 to 650 m2 with a total building area of 25,800 m2.

The Project was recently to star in a music video for singer Maya Diab; The video shows up its luxury and futurist design as it works great as an embodiment of the future era that serves better the concept of the clip. (Director: Jad Shweiry)
No doubt to have that look of an enormous spaceship coming out straight from an outer far away Aliens planet (...)
