Construction work has completed at Beirut’s The Cube.

The residential tower, which was designed by Orange Architects on behalf of Lebanese development corporation, Masharii, is located in the Sin el Fil district of Lebanon’s capital city.

Rather than incorporating an extrusion of a singular floor plan, the 50m-tall structure features a series of stacked individual villas offering views of Beirut and the Mediterranean.

The rotation of the volumes on each level offers residents outdoor areas on the roof of the apartment below, as well as panoramic windows with widths of up to 12m.

Orange Architects’ design includes 14 stacked and rotated floor plans, which comprise a total of 19 apartments ranging in size from 117 sqm to 234 sqm.

In addition to its residential units, The Cube features a three-layer parking garage which is partly set into an adjacent hill.

Orange Architects worked alongside main contractor K Abboud during the design and build of The Cube. Work at the 5,600-sqm development began in May 2011.
