Dubai Properties has appointed EDGE as the design architect and lead consultant for 1/JBR. In collaboration with WSP, one of the world’s leading engineering professional services companies, the award-winning Dubai-based architecture firm is working closely with the master developer’s in-house project management team to ensure that all phases of the construction progress on schedule. The main contractor for 1/JBR is Dubai Contracting Company (DCC), one of the key players in the field of building construction in the UAE.
Martin Baerschmidt, Founding Partner and Managing Director at EDGE, said: “We designed 1/JBR keeping in mind two primary goals – waterfront views and spatial clarity. The minimalist aesthetic permeates every aspect of the building and its interior design. As a result, each space conveys a sense of serenity that is not commonly found in residential buildings. Inspired by Emirates Towers, one of Dubai’s most iconic mixed-use developments, 1/JBR, upon completion, will redefine Dubai’s skyline as it becomes one of the most slender towers in this city of skyscrapers.”
