ABC Dbayeh

nARCHITECTS is currently in construction of the 500,000 sq.ft. ABC Dbayeh department store - a Beirut landmark for Beirut’s oldest and most important department brand. This project provides a 300,000sf addition and a new facade for the existing 200,000sf building. Turning various constraints into opportunities, the project creates a cohesive assembly of disparate parts: four volumes step down the sloped site, terminating in a backlit laser cut aluminum screen on a prominent highway bordering the Mediterranean Sea. The screen will reduce heat gain on the building’s western exposure. Waste from the aluminum cut-outs on the westernmost volume is being used as a cladding element throughout the remaining three volumes.
