The new Public library occupies a 3000m2 site in one of the busiest neighborhood in Beirut city.
Our concept translates site out-lines into smooth dynamic lines to set as the primary form generator for the building.
Distinction from context the unique form of the Library raises from two separated ground and first floor blocks gradually expanding to meet at the second floor.
The structure’s two lower levels contain Multi-purpose hall retail and auditorium facilities those above provide works-spaces reading halls stocks and computer halls while top-level is dedicated to administrations. The landscaping passes through the center of the building and raises behind forming the amphitheater.
The curved exterior lines continue affecting on interior spaces. With a central planted space surrounded by a panoramic stair the entrance space is opened to the skylight.
Note: The design of this project is submitted to Beirut Public library competition
