Make’s proposals for a high-end residential canal-side scheme in Abu Dhabi harness innovative design and building technology to create an unparalleled living and leisure environment.
The highly sustainable development with a distinctly contemporary Arabic theme comprises six modern seven-storey mansion blocks containing a range of premium residential apartments and leisure amenities. These luxurious and highly flexible spaces can be adapted to suit any number of tenures and typologies.
The mansion blocks define the character of the canal-side and create a new promenade with retail, restaurant and leisure facilities. A series of sheltered private courtyards at the heart of each block offer unique micro-environments in which lush greenery and high quality finishes, supported by passive cooling processes, create calm oases for residents and visitors.
Driven by Abu Dhabi’s ‘Estidama’ methodology for constructing and operating buildings more sustainably, the mansion blocks are designed to work passively, with the architectural character integral to the passive measures utilised within the facade.
