The Tadawul-listed Emaar - The Economic City is developing King Abdullah Economic City (KAEC), the region’s largest-of-its-kind real estate project in Saudi Arabia. The 181 km 2 development on the Red Sea coast, energises the economy through diverse components including a port, industrial zone, and residential projects. The focal point of the coastal strip is called the Coastal Towers. Emaar - The Economic City appointed EDGE to design five towers ranging from G+25 to G+60 in height.
“Conversely, clarity-oriented design organizes all spaces as simple rectilinear rooms. The floor plans are entirely rational, ensuring that each apartment has as much usable space as possible. This is the value added by design,” said Ivar Krasinski, EDGE Founding Partner and Lead Designer on the project.
This 35-storey residential tower features 1-3 bedroom units, penthouses, townhouses and retail. The residential units all enjoy views overlooking the Burj Khalifa, the Dubai Creek Tower, Dubai Creek and Ras al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary.
The design provides a social venue by mixing of different offices, retail and hospitality spaces all in one space with special attention and consideration given to external and internal Spaces adjoining the street forming an extension of the public realm that is suitable for commercial tenants seeking a high exposure and foot traffic.
This project was one of the proposals which helped us secure one of the plots in Dubai Creekside area. The design is driven by views towards Burj Khalifa. The resulting form has views toward the Burj even from the apartments toward the back.
This project was one of the proposals which helped us secure one of the plots in Dubai Creekside area. The podium plays a central role in the design, providing the residents with amenities such as gym, function rooms, swimming pool, sun deck, and townhouses.
These green pockets that rise through the sky will create a unique environment to foster a sense of community within the residences of the tower, benefiting the social, mental and physical factors afforded by communal green spaces whilst creating a place for residents unlike any other tower in Dubai.
A house designed specifically for this spectacular Australian coastal site, combining lessons learned from previous beach house living and numerous summers spent holidaying on this coast. With almost entirely north facing glass utilised for both heating and cooling, large operable glass door panels make living in the house similar to sailing a yacht, always adjusting to the weather conditions.
