ABU DHABI | ADIC Headquarters | 150m x 2 | 30 fl x 2 | Com

ADIC Headquarters, Abu Dhabi

Height | 150m
Floors | 25 x 2
Use | Commercial
Architect | Aedas
Developer | Abu Dhabi Investment Council

Construction Status | Under Construction
Construction Start | 2009
Construction End | 2012

Aedas Site | e-architect page

Notes:
The practice’s appointment to design the 25-storey twin office towers followed an invited international competition won by Aedas in 2007.
The design concept reflects the client’s aspiration to build a pair of office towers that will serve as a landmark for the city of Abu Dhabi while reflecting the aspirations of the 2030 Abu Dhabi Plan.

Linked via a podium, the towers, which comprise over 75,000sqm of accommodation, will accommodate approximately 2,100 occupants.
“Our design concept was generated from a mathematically pre-rationalised form which was in turn derived from Islamic principles” said Aedas Director Peter Oborn.

”A key feature of the design is the application of a diaphanous screen that envelopes the most exposed aspect of the building in the form of a dynamic ‘Mashrabiya’, opening and closing in response to the sun’s path, significantly reducing solar heat gain and providing a more comfortable internal environment.”

Landscaped external spaces including a palm reserve and water features link the two towers via elegant pedestrian pathways. The elevations of the building are punctuated by three sky gardens arranged on the upper levels of the towers, further reducing the solar heat gain on the most exposed elevation.

Planned development for the Abu Dhabi Investment Council project will transform a total site area of 11,500sq m. with a unique architectural design that will meet the aspirations of the client and the city of Abu Dhabi.

Fantastic! Once again it proves the point that most skyscrapers in Abu Dhabi are far superior compared to what is being built in Dubai.
