Water features and palm trees allude to the palatial oasis of luxury that is both culturally sensitive to the styles and traditions of Abu Dhabi while maintaining an affinity with the national identity of the United Arab Emirates.

Modern techniques of etching and casting allowed traditional patterns to become an integral component of the façade design.

Architecture spectacularly frames the sloping approach to an exterior of marble, granite and stone, with a glow emanating from every balcony at night creating an inspiring light show.
