The project aims at providing non-typical working/ living lofts for the emerging creative scene in Beirut. It is located at the proximity of the NBT railway station. The circular floor slabs are organized around a central circulation core which is defined by an octagonal void that runs throughout the building. A 30 m2 rotating platform moves vertically within the void and acts as a freight elevator which serves all the lofts individually providing direct vehicular access to every loft for moving large scale works of art, musical instruments, collectors car... When not in use, the moving platform rests at ground level giving way for a large central atrium that provides natural light and ventilation to the landings at all floors. The 360 degree glazed facade allows for full exposures on all orientations. With clear floor heights of 4m40 and 5m50, and wall to wall, floor to ceilings openings, the spatial quality of the proposed lofts is reminiscent of artist studios from the early modern period. Despite the radial configuration of the apartments on the floor plates, an orthogonal geometry governs the individual layouts of all the interiors. The seven story building consists of 24 types of apartments on a total of 29 units. The types range from 110 m2 duplex to 435 m2 panoramic loft. Ample vehicular parking is provided at ground floor and below ground where additional storage spaces are also provided for every loft.
