Project: The Empire Tower, Abu Dhabi
The Empire Tower is a 60-storey luxury residential development. The building occupies a prime site near the coast and is surrounded by three major streets while also emphasizing the vista afforded by this site. The design standardizes the units to accommodate the client request but manipulates the section to develop a very dynamic solution, which holds its own amidst the visual clutter of its neighbors.

The design maximizes the towers presence on the street with vertical layers spreading out to the property lines. The building then bends back away from the street across from a large commercial tower allowing for an enlarged view corridor between the central park of the community and the sea, one block away.
