KEO use classic design and innovative materials to create two residential towers of distinction on Al Reem Island, Abu Dhabi 

Dar Al Dhabi Al-Sharq Towers are two 35 storey residential towers located on Al Reem Island, Abu Dhabi. Designed by KEO International Consultants for Dar Al Dhabi Real Estate the design solution integrates over 800 apartment units within two L-shape forms around a central courtyard. A distinct copper clad mashrabiya creates a screen to disguise the various apartment units and balconies within the buildings, while also offering a sense of warmth and privacy to their residents. The need to provide so many apartments within the building is counterbalanced by creating sky gardens at several locations throughout the tower to provide places for communal gatherings and a connection to nature.

Raj Patel, the Principal Designer for the project states "The buildings promise to evoke a unique presence both during the day and at night as a result of the material and geometric pattern of its screen."
