About the winner project
Located in Al Madina Road, next to Bayat plaza, a mixed-use development. It includes a 4-star hotel with 250 rooms and two restaurants one on the first level and one on the 40th level. The offices for
this development are housed between the 15th floor and the 40th floor. The tower resembles an ellipse that rises directly out of the ground with modular fins that project according to the tower orientation. These fins protect the silver glass building from the sun and help save energy as well. This elliptical shape also maximizes the view of the surrounding area.
The simple elliptical glass tower was made from Semi-reflective huge glass panels that reflects the surrounding all day long. It is the reflection that makes the tower merge flawlessly contrasting its surroundings of Al Madina road.
“ How can one design a high-rise tower in a growing city within a relatively old context? The answer was simple. City Reflection“, says Khaled Alshamaa, director of XYZ DESIGNERS.
