Penthouse in the 20/30 towers in Beirut

The 20/30 towers represent a fresh vision for Beirut. They combine uncompromising luxury with an unprecedented respect for the environment. Designed and constructed in partnership with the largest architecture, energy and engineering firms, this residential building harnesses the latest design and construction technologies. The end result is not only exceptionally sustainable and functional, it is beautiful. 20/30 is as green on the inside as it is environmentally sound on the outside and throughout the premises. A curved photovoltaic network transforms the sun's rays into enough electricity to provide hot water, heating and air conditioning to all the shared areas of the building, using the latest-generation VRV technology to tap these renewable resources. Exclusive thermal insulation and zinc cladding ensure that the 20/30 residences retain the smallest possible carbon footprint.

Located right at the top, the penthouse is a triplex with a generous double height ceiling, a terrace and a pool. The concept behind the project was to create an urban retreat overlooking the city. The space within the three-storey penthouse is structured around the principle of vertical movement, with a private lift and staircase. This element is the backbone of the project. The Vitrocsa TH+ system with motorised runners is designed to be invisible, and to blur the boundaries between inside and out, specifically adapted to the Mediterranean climate. The meticulous details of the Vitrocsa invisible frame have helped create a unified space, with the white marble flooring running from the inside all the way to the edge of the pool. These minimal details showcase both the landscaping and the view surrounding the apartment.

The following Vitrocsa systems were used:

For the sliding façades:
- Sliding Vitrocsa TH+ with invisible wall
- The main façade is motorised, with total dimensions of 5.7 m high by 8 m wide
- Glass: high-performance insulating glass with laminated double glazing (laminated inner and outer panes)

For the guillotine:
- Vitrocsa TH+ motorised guillotine
- Dimensions: 10 m high by 3 m wide
- Glass: high-performance insulating glass with laminated double glazing (laminated inner and outer panes)
