The largest open space in Beirut Souks, the square will constitute their main entrance from the North. The design addresses the site history, location and surroundings to create a link between the traditional city center and the New Waterfront District. The space is divided into two main areas, a lower plaza

and a higher circulation plaza. The transition between the two levels is through a pedestrian lane shaping a natural amphitheater and event seating area. The competition winning design for the square is under review following revised designs of adjacent buildings.
