Strata Tower

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates
The mesmerising centrepiece of Abu Dhabi's prestigious Al Raha Beach development, Strata Tower is the tallest building in the Al Dana district. Its iconic façade gracefully twists upwards to touch the clouds, adorning Abu Dhabi's skyline with a spectacular landmark.

The tower's stunning design is influenced by a variety of considerations including sustainability. Sophisticated computer modelling was used to develop the building's intelligent and environmentally-responsive louvre system. This is held in place by a unique cantilevered exoskeleton that veils the entire tower in a shimmering curvilinear form – vibrantly contrasting against the surrounding desert and sea.

The end result is a work of mathematical precision, pure and sublime. An inspirational design that is poetic yet functional – wholly symbolic of a city in flux with ambitions and enjoying spectacular growth.

Hosting luxurious apartments, Strata Tower offers uplifting views and unforgettable panoramas. Facilities and amenities include a state-of-the-art health club and gymnasium, as well as a helipad.
