Morina Tower, Abu Dhabi, UAE

The site for this project is located on Reem Island, Shams Development in Abu Dhabi and is located in the main pedestrian boulevard running parallel to the Canal. The project has a unique site plot that overlooks the water view from 2 sides; the south overlooking the canal and the north-west overlooking the natural mangroves towards Saadiyat Island.

KEO’s scope of services comprise architectural concept design for a 70,000 sq. m, 20 floor residential tower on a plot area of 5,906 sq. m. The design concept for this project stems from creating a landmark building with emphasis on efficiency and the apartment views.

The residential tower provides 180 apartment units. Each typical floor contains 9 units along a bent floor plate to provide the best possible views from the apartments and breaks the length of the corridor. The roof terrace provides a private floor for residents to enjoy a garden space, lap pool and deck.
