The office building project is located on plot 1394 Solidere, Beirut. The project consists of 11 floors, 5 of which are dedicated to offices, 1 to technical machinery, a shop front, and 4 basement floors for parking space. The typical façade is a high-end unitized curtain wall with various raking geometries and supporting conditions to meet a unique architectural design indent. Photovoltaic panels cover spandrel zones with LED-lit horizontal louver blades that define the architecture even more.
The shopfront is a daring combination of structural bonding and raking glass in a fully transparent setup. Low-iron glass fins, acting as framing members, span up to 4.5 m shaped at their last third portion to bond against straight and raking glass panels.
