On the basis of the postulates and the modularity of trapezoid residential units, a typical tower floor is designed in a characteristic blossom-like shape. The smaller apartments and those that may be combined are positioned on the northern and north-western side, and there are two larger apartments on the eastern and western side. The apartments are purposely designed in a hexagonal shape to provide maximum convenience and comfort as well as to ensure flexibility within the units and the possibility of combining them. The tower is uniquely designed to deal with various weather conditions as well.
The tower is fully wrapped in a membrane that opens towards the north, where there are balconies looking over at Burj Khalifa, and closes towards the south where the risk of overheating is the highest. The membrane made of prefabricated panels wraps itself around the entire giving the structure a distinctive look.
A beautiful structure, it promises to be the perfect architectural complement to the Burj Khalifa.
