Location: Lebanon, Tripoli.
Type: Public Building
The challenge to work around Niemeyer’s masterpieces is solved through respect and admiration. A series of displaced stripes arrange the whole with clarity and simplicity. The remaining areas are completed with orange orchards recovering the roots, bringing us back to an inland Tripoli forged through the richness of the water in a dry land.
The early sketches of Niemeyer’s work anticipated the mixing between horizontal and vertical structures. The project has just followed those initial intentions with a XXI’s siecle material.
Outdoor spaces are the extension of the buildings themselves, with citrus notes underneath the shadows of the orange orchards. A low cost lawn in the heart of the project is designed to enjoy sports, and outdoor exhibitions, offering a wonderful open space to relax.
Design is completely flexible and adaptable in all the facilities. Spaces are luminous and attractive to increase creativity and dynamism. Design is easy to mantain, administrate, and replicate, with industrial and sustainable solutions.
