Situated within the Burj Khalifa district at the foot of the Iconic Burj Khalifa: part of a residential zoning band that wraps around the principal commercial-retail development of the Burj Khalifa district to the south-east and south-west, the Dubai Springs Apartment tower is a clear and bold statement of a new urban lifestyle and contemporary living. The concept design lies within three major axes. First, creating a more humane scale urban relationship, the podium mass is often a large block with very little scale differentiation and virtually no relationship to the public realm.
One major direction will be to create an inviting and appropriate scale relationship with the street by dematerializing the podium mass: therefore, we plan the juxtaposition of an elegant and sleek glass tower structure with its cosmopolitan and urban contexts, signifying the sophisticated and stylish lifestyle of the region.Second, develop a series of standard unit plans that offer efficient- flexible layouts and a luxury oriented level of furnished apartments that correspond to the lifestyle and expectation of potential users. The interior design of each unit seeks to define a level of lifestyle living that corresponds to each potential client, whether target user or purchaser. Third and lastly, adapting to regional climate, active and passive solutions are key components of basic architectural design features incorporated in the concept design. When local materials are used especially, the massing and architectural components respond efficiently and effectively to long-term conditions of climate.
