Located in the Greater Beirut coastal area, a new development zone about 100 meters away from the seashore, with a total construction of 25000 sqm, consists of a 1200-seat concert hall and a music academy building for 600 undergraduates and graduates.

users-first and people-centered approach: Through the use of open and semi-open squares, courtyards, atriums, light wells, and corridors, the buildings maximize the use of natural lighting and natural ventilation and provide a healthy studying environment and better building performance for the entire project. 

The variety of open spaces can be used for different activities, in a group or in person, giving many different possibilities to gather and share ideas and have social interactions.

Also, the project provides many public spaces and inviting the community to be part of the academy.
