Lebanese Office Building
The office building is located on the main street of Badaro, a dense district in Beirut. The corner situation of the lot and the street alignment (with rigid shaped buildings) has led us to create a building with a different identity. By stacking the office spaces, we encourage a different reading of the office building.
