Residential Project Dubai, Abu Dhabi
Sheppard Robson and ID:SR were invited by Dubai Property Group to submit a design for a high profile residential development in Downtown Dubai.
The design consists of a four level podium containing shops, entrance lobbies and car parking on the lower floors with residential apartments and leisure areas in the upper floors. Two residential towers of 24 floors each extend above the podium. The towers have been designed as two isosceles triangles which have been orientated to maximise views to the north towards the Burj Khalifa. This façade is fully glazed and incorporates balconies to maximise the potential view whilst also minimising the proportion of façades to the southerly aspects which suffer from direct solar gains. The simple plan geometry and orientation reduces carbon in use by 10% annually.
