JEDDAH | Golden Tower | 219m | 48 fl | U/C

One minimal volume shift defines the slick silhouette of Silver Tower. Located on the 14th technical level, this break absorbs the difference in the floor plate area between the lower apartments (2 units per floor) and the upper ones (full floor apartments). It is a subtle shift on the skyline, and can be better appreciated at a close urban range. It helps the building address the lower-rise surroundings while providing an exclusive and ample terrace space for the apartments on level 15 overlooking the Corniche and the sea.
A very important aspect of the rational floor plan is the flexibility, where the building’s structure is catered by the core and the peripheral columns. The result is a bright and uninterrupted space inside allowing every effective layout.
The building skin is a mixed curtain walling system, with glass, frit glass, Photo Voltaic glass panels, and stone in 2 types of finish (honed and high polish). The percentage and the configuration of each of the components changes according to the needs of different spaces of the apartment behind, ranging from service areas having the least exposure to the noble reception areas where total transparency is achieved. These components follow an overall underlying grid logic in the curtain wall, but are used in such a way that they blur the reading of repetitive floors of the tower into a more homogeneous and elegant surface. This gives the tower its reading as a monolithic and coherent object.

49 floors 55 000 m² including 3 parking floors above ground, 1 basement 5 000 m²

by the way...

the official name for this project is "Golden Tower", so I guess the title must be changed to:
JEDDAH l U/C |Golden Tower| 48 F | 219 m |Residential

JEDDAH | Golden Tower| 48 F | 219 m l U/C

I hate it when towers have a colour in their names yet their design has no bit of that colour. The facade should have been golden glass.

Khalid Bin Ibrahim al-Ibrahim, Chairman of the Development Corporation Ltd. for the project residential tower consists of 48 floors, located on the Red Sea city of Jeddah, and consists of several apartments and tracts up between 350 and 850 square metres and glazed facades varies in width between 18 and 40 m, indicating that the residential tower will enjoy the many services and facilities, such as swimming pools and health clubs for men and women, all on the sea, and more than 2,000 square meters of green space. The Tower provides parking and separate drivers for each residential unit, with adherence to international standards in the areas of security and safety, and is equipped with a central control room over 24 hours.
This came at a ceremony in the Hall of my night, attended by Chairman of Solidere international Dr. Nasser Shamaa, dignitaries, businessmen and media representatives.

Also, the facade helps the building to underline its elegance
