KEO provides an elegant design for URC's residential complex on Palm Jebel Ali 

The design solution led by Senior Principal Designer Raj Patel carves a void out of the podium’s center to create a ceremonial entrance court. A landscaped boulevard from the main road leads to the center of this entrance court providing a directional gesture to the beach beyond and ceremonial entries into the twin residential tower lobbies.

The podium roof level provides access to the amenities garden level. A floating horizontal plane spans between the two podiums supporting an infinity edge swimming pool and a fitness center hovering above it. 25 residential floors comprising of a mixture of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartment units, townhouse garden units, and deluxe penthouse units sit above the podium. A roof terrace level is shaded with a canopy structure which houses photovoltaic panels to generate energy for the building.

The material of the podium structure comprises of a combination of grey Glass Reinforced Concrete panels, clear low-E vision glass, and back-lit shadow box spandrels. The tower consists of beige Glass Reinforced Concrete panels and low-E vision glass. The western façade has bronze clad vertical fins which disguise the balconies on every floor, provide privacy to adjacent balconies, and offer shading to the glass façade during the late afternoon hours. The visual play of the geometric design of these materials on the façade creates a distinguishable and dynamic image to the project.
