The Address Skyscraper Building
The Address is a mixed-use, 63 storey tower comprising a 198 key, 5 star hotel plus 626 serviced apartments. The imposing 306m height and striking design produce a landmark project that stands at the opposite end of the lake to the world’s tallest building, the Burj Dubai. The floor plate of the The Address hotel is based on an organic evolution of a series of linked arcs which present imposing interconnected double and triple volume public spaces with full views of the lake and Burj Dubai tower; this concept is also extended to the guest room levels.

U-bora Towers
Design: Aedas

U-bora Towers
The U-bora Towers development was designed in response to the site conditions and has given equal attention to its three different uses – offices, residential and retail. The office tower forms a sculptural element with plans twist at varying degrees and angles as it increases in height, re-orientating their faces to maximise available views. Fused with the office tower through a 10,000 square-meter public landscaped deck is the residential element, which stays low to maintain a suitable residential scale and offer prime lake views.

Waterfront City Masterplan
Design: Office for Metropolitan Architecture

Dubai Waterfront Masterplan Buildings
Dubai-based developer Nakheel commissioned OMA to design a high density development that was free from dependency on the car. As a solution to this, Waterfront City is designed with the density of Manhattan in mind and offers a compact solution for a modern day metropolis. Commerce, retail, culture and private accommodation are programmatically overlapped to create a lively city centre within the Waterfront development. The inclusion of a central park, large mosque area and iconic landmark attractions will enable visitors and inhabitants to enjoy a vibrant city from street level.

The design began with a simple and over-arching ambition: to maximise efficiency and build more with less. An iterative process of traditional design and parametric analysis resulted in an efficient and compact form that has reduced material and embodied carbon.
