Dubai Festival City, UAE
- Al Futtaim
This large-scale residential development is in the high profile Dubai Festival City precinct. With approximately 100,000sqm of total floor area, the project comprises a 500 key residential tower rising out of a 2,000sqm retail podium. The residential dwellings are a combination of both privately owned apartments and serviced apartments operated by the Intercontinental Hotel Group.
Situated in a high profile position adjacent to Dubai Creek, one of design challenges was to maximize the panoramic views across the water for as many apartments as possible, which was solved by having long thin arced structure facing the water that is book-ended by two spherical towers.
