This tower design is a pure, simple iconic residential, retail and office facility for the city of Tel Aviv. The 37-story tower for Berggruen Construction and Development will be located on Rothschild Boulevard and Allenby Street, one of Tel Aviv’s most distinguished addresses. The fundamental considerations that shape the tower scheme are the quality of light in the plan, views to the sea, and relationships with the existing fabric of Rothschild Boulevard. In the local neighborhood the intention is to integrate a new landmark building as an “anchor” in the heart of Tel Aviv, complementing its nearby modern predecessors in the Bauhaus style design of the historic “White City”.

Soaring at 50-storeys this tower building redefines high-rise high-density living and challenges the conventions of public housing as an architectural typology. The project addresses pragmatic, financial, social issues, and responds sensitively to a myriad of planning constraints. It boldly demonstrates a sustainable and liveable urban high-rise high-density living and initiates an innovative typology of public communal spaces that are metaphorically reclaimed from the air.

Ras Al Khaimah Tower, UAE

Situated in the desert 150 km to the east of Dubai this landmark tower design will mark the gateway to the emirate and form the entrance to the new planned capital city of Ras Al Khaimah. The architectural expression for our proposal is inspired by the surrounding desert and mountain landscape. This concept provides for an infinite variety of naturally shaded, intimate and protected spaces, around which the multiple uses associated with the development are woven. The undulating architectural landscape is resolved in a dramatic landmark tower marking the main gateway plaza. The 200m high tower design includes a 5 star plus hotel affording panoramic views across the emirate, to the gulf and mountains beyond.
