Alterations and Additions at our Canada Bay residence called for opening and enlarging the rear of the house to transform it into a modern home for living and entertaining. The long entrance hallway opens up to one large space which incorporates the living, kitchen and dining areas, customised to the needs of the young family. The kitchen features an open galley-style kitchen with generous bench widths and a casual seating space, while the living space features two oversized sliding doors which create a variety of different outdoor living spaces.
The project is born from the prime necessity to convert the property from an office to a residential building. The owner asked moreover to think about an elegant, fresh, flexible space, which could communicate with the numerous plants: their major passion. The whole layout has been then redesigned according to the new needs.
The construction of the residential tower The Cube in Beirut is fi nalized. Orange Architects designed the iconic tower for the Lebanese development corporation Masharii. The Cube is located on a prominently visible location on Plot 941 in Sin el Fil, an eastern district of Beirut, Lebanon. The concept of the 50 meter high tower is simple but extraordinarily effective: ‘MAXIMIZE’; making optimal use of the client’s wishes, the site’s potential, the local building code and the fantastic views on Beirut and the Mediterranean. The Cube is presenting a whole new level to the concept of high rise, or the architecture of towers.
The purpose of the renovation was to adapt the 70m² apartment to the demands of a young couple. The main requests were the visual integration in social area (living, dining and kitchen), and the need for storage. The couple works partly from home, so it was necessary to provide a flexible office, which could serve as a guest bedroom.
