This 5,500-m2 mixed-use development occupies a prominent position along Al Falah Street in Abu Dhabi.

The program comprises basement and ground floor retail outlets, as well as 45 apartments that range between 1, 2 and 3 bedroom units.

One of the common design problems in Abu Dhabi lies in the articulation of permissible cantilevers and their overall integration within the design of elevations and plans.

In this solution, building corners are maintained throughout the levels as the cantilevers emerge gradually from the lower floors, thus enabling a dynamic reading of the building’s vertical lines.
