The Rmeil 183 residential building designed by Bernard Khoury Architects is located on a 247 m² land on lot #183 in a quiet residential area of Rmeil. The 18 m wide western edge faces Chafik el Mouayiad Street. The street level façade of the ground floor allows for both the pedestrian building entrance as well as the vehicular entrance. Surface parking is provided on the ground floor, fitting the cars under the 3 m high pilotis structure of the building.

The main façade of the plot is limited to 18 meters of the main street with a depth of approximately half that length. The shallow depth of the building necessitates a plan of single- loaded rooms along the street façade. In order to compress these functions into 18 m, the solution was to stack 250 m² apartments in split levels, alternating living rooms and two floors of bedrooms.The longitudinal terraces on the main glazed façade allow the possibility of an external promenade around the apartments with an alternative outdoor access to the rooms.

The central part of the terraces benefit from a 4.4 m ceiling height, which allows a suspended garden on each floor. The sixth and seventh floor house a 250m² duplex penthouse, including an ample private terrace on the main street side.

Level 1 and up are very well done. Love the balconies. How usable are these in the heat of summer? Seems like traditional buildings approach a different solution (staircase within). Also, I can't tell too well in the images, due to angle, but ground level seems to disrupt the urban fabric - appears to disengage the street which is troublesome. obviously I lack the entire context but this is something I see all too often here in america. It scars cities. I hope the architect didn't acquire americanitis during his studies in RI.
