The project is situated on a big plot overlooking beirut central district, between two important arteries and two sloping access roads. through a very careful and extensive research a grid was adopted to govern the activities of the multifunction center. starting from the basements we find: 5 parking levels, 3 commercial and restaurants levels around a courtyard, four level of offices, seven levels of hotel and at last with a breath taking view twelve apartments floors. the levation treatment was adapted to each function and creates an interesting succession of layers giving this building its special character. independent access are provided for each function with a battery of lifts and staircases giving control and security to each of the multifunction activities.
