ABU DHABI | Saraya 1 | 41 fl | Pro

dwp to design one of thirty towers set for Saraya Abu Dhabi


design world partnership (dwp) has won a contract from aabar Investments to provide the architecture, environmental and interior design services for a 41 storey luxury residential tower in Saraya Abu Dhabi. Saraya 1, as the tower will be called, will be situated near the Arabian coastline within the 'Lagoon' Precinct providing uninterrupted vistas of the waterfront and foreshore districts.
dwp’s UAE-based design team, led by Toufic Zaidan, have striven to reduce the effect on the operational energy demands and emissions of the building as well as ensuring its occupants wellbeing and comfort. Located within the master-planned community development of Sorouh Real estate PJSC under the project SARAYA, the tower will respond to the local climate aiming to reach Gold LEED certification. According to Zaidan, “The smooth and slim undulating tower echoes the water it faces. Its curvilinear facade will vary in colours and shades according to the sun’s location and intensity. This intensity of climate has also made us look at the energy efficiencies and sustainability of its design.”
The location was used as to coordinate the high performance, energy-efficient high-rise design, impacting on orientation and boundary and defining the building’s shape. The overall façade utilises state-of-the art glass curtain walls with thermal insulation and the use of green and low-VOC building materials. The design team incorporated further energy efficiencies through the use of enclosed balconies that can optionally open up.
Indoor air quality improvement with air filtration systems and natural ventilation, waste reduction and recycling strategies; the design of the structure and use of materials are all incorporated into the architectural DNA of the building. The sustainable use of water in such an arid environment is extremely important. The building collects and reuses rain water and façade condensation, it also has a grey water treatment facility for recycling and reuse. Saraya Abu Dhabi will consist of 30 towers, that will include residential and commercial buildings ranging from 10 to 40 stories and hotels spread over 120,000 sq m. The project will be completed in phases. The construction of the towers will be completed in two phases, by 2010 and 2013.

As everything else in UAE they mix bold/furturistic and in some cases totally off and weird design with "traditional" witch makes it all like being on an exhibition for new architects rather then a modern city. This one comes in that category.

haters gonna hate

Are you saying their architects are inexperienced/immature and only iSthlms approved list of "old" architects could create a real modern city worthy of praise?
