Luxury “The Cube” by Orange Architects

Dutch studio Orange Architects offers interesting design for the luxury apartment called “The Cube” in the eastern district of Beirut. “The form reaches the maximum allowable height to produce flexible floor plans to optimize breath taking views of the city and Mediterranean. The stacked floor plates, varying in floor area, maintain structural stability by rotating the placement of solid exterior walls by 90 degrees on each successive level. Continuous ribbon windows blurring the tangible boundaries enclose the dwelling while framing pristine views of the region. Open air verandas containing terrace roof gardens and a children’s playground are placed within the natural niches created by the buildings shifting profile. a covered parking garage is concealed at the tower’s base within a berm blanketed with native vegetation.”
