Dubai Maritime City Residential Tower
GAJ were appointed by Deyaar Development PJSC to design a high rise residential tower within the Dubai Maritime City Development. Located along the waterfront of the Harbour Residences District the tower contains more than 500 apartments spread over 55 floors and is massed along the waterfront, taking advantage of the views of the harbour and of the city beyond. The front and back facades are treated differently, based on the sun path analysis that was been carried out in order to minimise energy consumption and to maximise shading. The façade employs a balanced mix of glass and solid panels, which give the building a layered façade.
The building was generated to maximise views from as many angles as possible, providing views for all apartments - those at the front enjoy a view of the marina while those at the back enjoy views of the rest of the development and the podium below.
