DESIGN

Inspired by tradition

The artistry of the craftsmen of Dubai, and the traditional forms of the region's fishing nets, provide inspiration for the geometry of D1's podium canopy. The materials and timber construction are reminiscent of the deep-sea dhow vessels associated with the Gulf region and its waterways. The resultant shade structure, so evocative of the Mashrabiya (Arabian screens), pays authentic homage to local tradition, as the towering form of D1 rises above the life-enhancing shade of the canopy.

Visually stunning and architecturally significant buildings, created from an audacious blending of passion and vision, underpin ENSHAA's reputation for design innovation and creating landmark developments which combine both conceptual brilliance and technical virtuosity.

Now, passion and proficiency are the intertwined attributes that give rise to the ultra-modern structure of D1, in the United Arab Emirates. D1 will enhance the built environment by fusing rich Middle Eastern heritage and culture with today's technology, quality and modernity... a stunning 80 storey residential tower, rising 284 meters on the premier site of the Dubai Creek cultural and artistic precinct.
