Business Bay Towers | Dubai, UAE

Architect: LOM
Location: Dubai, UAE
Sector: Residential / Workplace
Description: Delta have recently undertaken the detail lighting design on the new Business Bay Towers development, located in Dubai’s up and coming Business Bay district.

The twin towers will provide high quality office space, a flagship bank branch and waterfront retail promenade. Accommodation includes 108 luxury apartments, 600 parking spaces within the basement and podium, landscaped terrace gardens with swimming pools and a children’s play area, together with two gyms, leisure spaces and a secure data centre.

The two towers are clad in shimmering, triangulated curtain wall glazing to reflect the sun and water, flowing up from complex and articulated to smooth and crystalline. Three separate glass tints will offer richness and articulation, with two blue shades and a mirrored grey shade to add texture during daylight hours. The buildings will transform during the hours of darkness, where focused lighting has been integrated within the buildings façade to illuminate the structural form, creating a striking night time visual.

The retail arcade at promenade level will add life and activity to the development as an engaging urban setting. Rich landscaping and seating areas will be provided up to the plot boundary to link with the wider Business Bay pedestrian landscape.

The project is on site now and due for completion in 2018
