Conceptual Design Strategy
Internationally-recognized symbol of the faith of Islam, the crescent moon plays a significant role in Islamic architecture.
The design and construction of the building is influenced by the principles of Islamic architecture. The orientation of the towers towards the Mecca is adapted to the urban fabric. We can find indications of various geometric principles: the application of the shapes related to the geometrical principles of the moon.
These residential towers aim is becoming a distinctive addition to the city skyline. The strength of the towers shape and their concept behind will make the complex become an iconic landmark in Abu Dhabi.
A High end design glass facade with curtain walls helps to mitigate the solar heat while maximizing the daylight. Indoor green spaces and outdoor terraces for tenants create sky gardens and vertical green strips. A natural airflow system results from the difference between solids and voids.

Designed by one of the best in the industry, with an all glass facade and a distinctive design, the building is poised to become a new city landmark. Designed after analysing the different synergies between the moon and the proposed site during various periods of the year, the building embodies beauty and sophistication.
