Client has announced the ground-breaking for the project.
Following the successful completion of a design competition, LWK + PARTNERS has been appointed as the lead architect for the project. The development is a response to the ever-evolving nature of workspaces and lifestyle choices and features more than 170 upscale residences embracing the future of living. DIFC Living and Innovation Two will offer residents the very best in luxury living, with an emphasis on sustainable design and high-quality amenities that will set the benchmark for integration across the GCC, an expertise that we are uniquely placed to offer our valued development partners. Amenities, including a stunning infinity pool, a fully equipped gym, play area for kids, a cafe, residents’ lounges and a variety of upscale retail stores and a signature restaurant. The flagship project comprises 13,392m2 of offices and co-working spaces and an additional 3,558m2 has been earmarked for retail use. The state-of-the-art conference centre is expressed architecturally through a distinctive curved extrusion that cantilevers out from the building façade, offering exceptional views of the district. The building form, composed of interlocking geometries, carefully responds to the programmatic functions and site’s various characteristics, offering breathtaking city views. The pedestrian connection across the stepped podium introduces a series of cascading gardens and public plazas, which are activated with retail and F&B outlets and an amphitheatre for events and public performances.
The twisted cube at the top of the tower, like a lantern, will define the new destination and will become a landmark for the Dubai skyline. Housing a signature restaurant, it will place the new development at the forefront of exclusive dining and leisure experiences. The concept of sustainability is ingrained in the building design with environmental impact measurement in place throughout every phase of construction and post-handover. The team, including H2R Design, BG&E, Zutari, Hyland Edgar Driver Landscape, ZKLD Lighting Studio and Climatize, among others, all designed to LEED standards – the global green building rating system, a design standard that has been championed and consistently used by DIFC across its entire footprint.
