Residential Building – 550

Achrafieh - Lebanon
Imad Aoun

Located in the heart of the residential area in Achrafieh – Beirut – Lebanon, 550 is a 16 stories high residential building, with one apartment per floor and 2 underground parking levels.

Characterized by raw grey elements, underlined by black clear-cut frames, wooden natural surfaces, and a green garden at its base, the building stands out in a heavy and busy urban environment. Concurrently, the basalt cladding offers a particular edge, due to its changing color at different hours of the day. It transforms from light brown to dark grey, giving 550 Achrafieh a unique appearance at all hours.
