Dbayeh, Metn, Lebanon
“Dbayeh 627”, located on the internal Dbayeh road, offers a working hub with an optimized professional environment. Both active and passive systems in the building play roles in responding to, and supporting, the needs of office or retail spaces. An adaptive skin provides thermal insulation, and ensures the best possible light quality through a high shading coefficient on the south façade, and a selective opening on that of the north. This same flexible and responsive approach applies to the planning of the floor plates, which constitute three different office modules. These modules can, in turn, be arranged into five variable configurations. The well-lit workspaces offer high ceilings and full-height windows, as well as terraces, depending on the particular plan configuration.
