RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
As the project lies in a hot and dry climate it was necessary to do a detail solar impact analysis.The 3d prototype of the building was created on revit architecture and solar radiation analysis software was applied, to understand the impact on harsh sun on the habitable spaces.S/SW directions were producing extreme heat radiations and West had sharp sun angles.It was decided to create north tower with larger day light openings and deeper terraces on S/SW directions. Additional horizontal aluminum fins were provided for double protection and reduce the HVAC loads.

CHALLENGE:
The aim was to create an unique residence tower for luxury living yet humane and provide enough private spaces in conjunction to local ethos and culture. The concept of the tower provided a seamless modern and unique simple structure with a fine balance of nature and higher human lifestyle.
