Soaring at 50-storeys this tower building redefines high-rise high-density living and challenges the conventions of public housing as an architectural typology. The project addresses pragmatic, financial, social issues, and responds sensitively to a myriad of planning constraints. It boldly demonstrates a sustainable and liveable urban high-rise high-density living and initiates an innovative typology of public communal spaces that are metaphorically reclaimed from the air.

Situated in the desert 150 km to the east of Dubai this landmark tower design will mark the gateway to the emirate and form the entrance to the new planned capital city of Ras Al Khaimah.
