This development consists of four office towers facing a major motorway between Dubai and Abu Dhabi. An interconnected glass and metal screen, which appears to float in front of the facades, spans the approximate quarter mile length of all four structures, visually uniting the buildings and creating the effect of a “horizontal tower.” The development offers 90,000 square meters of office space, supported by first floor retail. The lobbies are designed with all-natural materials such as wood and marble, and feature reflecting pools and water walls. Emphasis on water and cool tones in public areas creates a refreshing, calming atmosphere in the midst of a desert climate.
