U+A Design team came up with an ultimately
innovative yet cost effective design solution for
these residential towers targeting average
income families who are looking for a
good quality life Style yet affordable.
The proposed design focuses on
repetition and standardization.
All buildings shall be designed in
consideration of separating apartments
that may be accommodated by families
i.e. two and three bedroom units and
apartments that may be utilized by bachelor
residents i.e. studios and one bedroom
units.Typical floor plates should be comprised
of either one and not to have a clash of lifestyle.
On ground floor level, residential buildings have
been clustered into two rows, east buildings and
west.East residential buildings are incorporated
with retail units providing with a shopping
boulevard along the stretch of the main road .
Below the podium level (on the ground level)
the space between the east buildings and west
buildings shall be utilized for car parking and
services.The central garden shall be situated on
the podium level.The East Buildings shall be
comprised of two heights G+8 and G+16.
While the West Buildings height shall be
between G+7 and G+6.Residential buildings
shall have direct access to street drop offs with
close proximity of building entrances. Service
areas of buildings shall be visible and accessible.
East residential buildings are comprised of two
typical building types that are identical and
repeated throughout the master plan.
Type E1 is a B+G+8 while Type E2 is B+G+16.
West residential buildings are comprised of two
typical building types that are identical and
repeated throughout the master plan.
Both types are B+G+7. Each type is comprised
of three wings, a middle wing and two mirrored
identical corner wings.
The identical corner wings are identical for both
types of buildings. The main difference occurs
within the middle wing where Type W1 has a
wider middle wing than Type W2.
West Residential buildings are situated parallel
to the side edge providing a wind and shading
shelter for the whole site. It also creates a dialog
between the east residential buildings and west
residential buildings.
