Developed by Benchmark and designed by Swiss architects Herzog and de Meuron, Beirut Terraces is a unique residential tower rising in Mina El Hosn, Beirut Central District’s most prestigious residential area. Inspired by beautiful layers of history, Beirut Terraces is set to become a national landmark with a global address. It crafts the city’s future through a one of a kind indoor outdoor living experience that introduces the first vertical village concept with hanging gardens and extended terraces.
Amid this urban hub of influences past and present, Beirut Terraces makes a staged entrance with its unique architecture. The result is a landmark project that pays homage to its environment while intelligently quenching the lifestyle of its contemporary inhabitants. The vertical village takes its cue from the city around it, incorporating this inspiration into its multi-layered structure with an unprecedented respect for what has come before and what is yet to come.
As empires have risen and fallen, Beirut has inherited a richness of urban layers, forming a magnificent backdrop to the present-day. From these impressive foundations, Beirut Terraces reawakens a sense of nostalgia while capturing the essence of the past. The concept capitalizes on this splendid past to propel it even further in the future, through 5 elemental principles.
1. Inside & Outside
Beirut Terraces revives the indoor versus outdoor living experience through the introduction of hanging gardens and extended perforated slabs, shaping generous terraces extending from one’s living space. With airy, large areas prevailing, their day to day life is balanced by the free flow between interior and exterior spaces.
2. Layers & Terraces
The individual apartments are grouped on the different levels in different formations and come together to beautifully mold a new neighborhood. The exterior’s multi-level curtains of greenery transform each apartment into a living, breathing entity with a personality of its own yet part of a vibrant vertical community.
The concept behind Beirut Terraces builds on the duality between high end living and environmental sustainability of every home.
3. Vegetation & Architecture
Blending art with landscaping gives a constant green feel and balances the immediate environment by providing an active breathing part for the architecture. Residents get to feel a complete sense of contentment in a home filled with vitality and serenity. All four seasons are reflected in the passing days and months. Residents enjoy living to the backdrop of a natural haven with breathtaking scenery; from the entranceway and lobby to the tower’s exterior appearance, a symphony of bio diversity is at play.
4. Views & Privacy
Floor-to-ceiling windows ensure rooms are bathed in natural light, offering residents scenic views of the sea, mountains, and the city right from their living room. Vegetated screens used throughout the building’s terraces provide shade, but more importantly guarantee the necessary level of privacy for each household. On the inside, interiors have been cleverly partitioned to grant residents the private spaces they need away from reception and public areas. The shifting scenery of every home bestows a fulfilling sight that combines the charm of the four seasons through a perfect osmosis with the outside panorama.
From this peaceful haven, residents can enjoy a range of features and facilities. The minute they enter the ground floor, they are met with exclusivity, extending from the surrounding upscale retail stores, private drop off area with spectacular water feature and landscaping, and finally to the private entrance lobbies. Visitors, alongside residents, are also welcomed in style with dedicated guest parking, together with generous storage room space, a private swimming pool and a gym, that are all part of the spacious amenities at hand.
