Dekwaneh, plot 864, Beirut
The building’s envelope derives from the function of each space. Containers would be loading unloading heavy masses of steel from the lower street whereas smaller trucks would be taking care of the low-weighted merchandise from the upper street. Inside, the ceilings’ heights also emerge from the subjects in the space, for instance, the overhead cranes at the ground floor are the dictator of the space. Optimal functionality is the starting point and result of our initial idea of the volume.
