Quantum Towers

This completed project comprises twin buildings, placed symmetrically on the two corners of a busy Beirut T-intersection.

Both granite-clad towers define wrap-around glazed street elevations. The facades overlooking the main street have carved terraces cascading towards the building corner rhythmically, framing the curtain wall, which reaches the lower floors.

The curtain wall corners form a curved gesture, contributing to the dynamic, almost fluid movement of the urban corners, where the entrances are located.

Despite strong similarities in exterior appearance, especially in the use of architectural elements, corner treatment and materials, the towers are not identical. There are vital differences in plan imposed by different functional requirements and site constraints, confirming each building as a separate project.

It is the prominence of both towers forming a powerful statement on the urban level that makes of both corners amongst the most significant contemporary landmarks in the capital Beirut.
