Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Aside from the building's strong design lines, the principal appeal of Phoenix Tower is the array of unique residential typologies. Nestled in the midst of the elite Dubai Waterfront development, the client, Neel Properties, desired a mix of living spaces designed to appeal to its discerning clientele. Exclusive duplex apartments form the base and the top of the tower, while the remainder of the 162m high building is dedicated to 43 storeys of varying sized apartments. Dewan's Dubai office was responsible for the concept design and design development of Phoenix Tower.
Its aim was to create a formal modern themed high rise, with a concrete structure and glazed curtain walls. High-end boutiques form the ground floor retail centre and throughout the building communal gardens are integrated. The incorporation of landscaping and al fresco areas was an important element in creating a true fusion of a green building concept with luxury living.
