Atkins was appointed by SKAI Holdings as lead designer for the 60-storey tower, which is to be located in the heart of Jumeirah Village, off Sheikh Zayed Road in Dubai.

The tower comprises a mix of serviced apartments and a five-star hotel – the first five star property in a five-kilometre radius. The sky lobby located at the top of the podium accommodates a spa, all-day-dining restaurant, health club, meeting rooms and a landscaped podium roof. The hotel part of the tower comprises 247 hotel rooms and suites, whereas the residential accommodation includes 221 one and two bedroom apartments and 33 four-bedroom apartments with private pools. 

The concept is based on a 30 degree rotation of each floor thus creating a series of lush-green balcony sky gardens and 271 sky-high swimming pools.

  • The P-17 Tower is a stunning, 77-storey mixed-use tower development which is set to grace Sheikh Zayed Road in the neighbourhood of Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC).

    The design of the super-slim P-17 Tower gives the illusion of constantly changing its appearance with the movement of people and the sun.

    Standing tall at 370 metres and just 30 metres wide, the tower’s darker front facade rises from the ground and twists slightly in a striking glass and steel design. Behind the elegant form, increasingly taller blades gently splay outwards, conveying the appearance of layered planes which dynamically move sideways to produce a challenging, gravity-defying form.

    The design integrates contemporary architectural thought, with innovative engineering solutions.

    At the mid-building level tower, an angled atrium cuts straight through the tower filling a void over several storeys, which serves the five-star hotel and the serviced apartments.

    Above the hotel are premium residential apartments and two floors of VIP suites which enjoy incomparable views of Dubai.

  • Atkins designed and provided construction supervision services for the 360m-high commercial tower, the centrepiece of the Jumeirah Lakes development and host to the Diamond Exchange facility.

    Almas, meaning ‘diamond’ in Arabic, was Atkins' inspiration behind the distinctive projecting facets of the two-storey steel podium at the base of this 60-storey tower. Eight diamond facets reach out in total with the most prominent facet housing the actual Diamond Exchange, the largest of its kind in the Middle East, where stones can be viewed and traded. The podium glass is of a specification such that the diamond inspection process will not be influenced by the light.

  • Atkins' work on the iconic 321m-high, 56-storey super-luxury hotel included architecture, civil and structural engineering, MEP engineering, construction supervision and cost consultancy services. The hotel is situated on a man-made island and is considered a symbol of modern Dubai.

    The Atkins-designed Burj Al Arab, with its distinctive theme of a billowing spinnaker sail of a high-tech J-class yacht, ranks alongside the instantaneously recognisable icons of other world cities. When it opened in time for the millennium celebrations, it was the world's tallest single structure hotel housing the world’s tallest atrium at 182m.

  • The Prince Sultan Cultural Center Company envisages a development which will engender “social wellness”, through which residents will take “an active part in improving the world by encouraging a healthy living environment and initiating better communications with those around them.”

    The masterplan for the project incorporates all the components needed for a strong community: residential; culture; healthcare; education; retail; offices and commercial space; exhibition and hospitality; and an integrated public realm network.

    The idea behind the project is to create a new type of community for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia which encourages ownership and involvement from everyone in order to promote physical and mental wellbeing. Every element within the masterplan has to meet this wellness criteria in order to create a city within the city of Jeddah – a fully self-sustaining mixed-use development.

    The site area of approximately 2.4 million square metres features 40% high quality public realm comprising gardens, urban squares and shaded walkways all interconnected by a large central linear park.
