Atkins prepared a conceptual design for this project which was planned for a prominent position adjacent to the Sheikh Zayed Road within the exclusive business district opposite the Dubai World Trade Centre.
The distinctive design concept employs an architectural language that espouses the continuous dialogue between modernism and local cultural traditions. A smooth dynamically shaped volume of glass and metal is embraced by a three-layered skin in the form of perforated walls, creating a delicate embroidery of solid and void. This external skin finds its roots in the traditional mashrabiyah, which was used throughout the regional architecture as an environmental and aesthetic solution to façade treatments. The sharp glazed volume cut its way through the three-layered skin, culminating at an impressive apex at 390m.
The tower comprises 240 studio apartments on the first 20 residential floors and 400 one-bedroom serviced apartments in the second 20-storey layer. The remaining 360 two-, three- and four-bedroom apartments are distributed on the third 37-storey layer with a number of exclusive penthouse apartments located at the very top of the pointed glazed volume.
A 16-storey car park building behind the tower provides parking space for 1,280 cars. Health club facilities, gymnasium and swimming pool are located above the car park structure and are accessible from the tower through a sky bridge.
