The Project is an attempt to rethink city developments due to housing needs by exploring other mediums than empty plots, or demolishing culturally valuable buildings. On a social and environmental  note, this project gives back to the city substantial amounts of green and public spaces, as well as reclaiming the waterfront. For the Design outcome, the development passed through 3 phases: re-routing & re-programing, site tailoring, and housing typology development. The extension of the existing structure also allowed for relatively open plan typologies, which adds a layer of flexibility to the living spaces unlike the more traditional typologies of the area. As far as waterfront reclamation, the project’s GF acts like a public platform, connecting the green pockets together and ensuring a sea view to all users, and a public pier extending to the sea, hovering over the International port of Beirut.
