Award Entry

KEO’s Wings project set to become one of Abu Dhabi’s most prestigious developments 

Situated at the gateway to Al Reem Island on Najmat marina, the 23,757 sq m ‘Wings’ project will have a defining impact on Abu Dhabi’s skyline. The site is approximately 200 meters in width by 110 meters in depth and is in the shape of a curved rectangle. One tower is designated as a residential tower while the other will be office space.

Each is conceived as a wing of a falcon which not only respects the geometry of the Marina in plan but flares outward in elevation. The twin 300m KEO designs will have incredible views over Abu Dhabi and the Gulf. The grand duplexes and luxurious penthouses in the top floors of the tower are destined to become one of Abu Dhabi’s most exclusive residential properties. Office space in the commercial tower of The Wings is also expected to attract wide spread attention from investors, as international corporations continue to set up operations in the UAE capital.

The entrance lobby will provide approximately 6,000 sq meters of commercial retail space along with access to both the residential tower and office tower. The podium structure comprises of a combination of stainless steel panels, stainless steel mesh panels, and back-lit glass panels. The atrium lobby will be primarily enclosed with a glass structure utilizing the shading qualities of ceramic frit on the skylight portion of the structure to protect the interior for excessive heat gain.
