The rehabilitation of the city of Beirut, Lebanon has inspired famed Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron to design Beirut Terraces. Situated in the prestigious Beirut Central District, this apartment tower is made up of slabs overlapping each other, with hanging gardens on every floor, creating a vertical village that blends the indoor and outdoor, views and privacy, landscape with architecture. The building’s extensive balconies allow natural light to come through, making it truly energy efficient. Due for completion in 2013, Beirut Terraces represents part of Beirut’s future with its contemporary waterfront living experience.
