Boulevard Plaza stands at the gateway into the Burj Dubai development. The importance of the site is accentuated even more by being located immediately across the street from the tallest tower in the world - Burj Dubai Tower.
The design strives to fit appropriately into this development as a respectful icon to the community. The relationship of the forms and their articulation derive from both its contextual response and as a symbol representing modern Islamic architecture set appropriately within the most modern Islamic city in the world – Dubai. Both towers point toward the main entry to greet the visitors. As one continues into the site, the towers rotate their orientation as a gesture of respect to the lofty neighbor across the street. The two towers of 42 and 34 floors contain grade A+ office space, looking out to take advantage of the views toward and around the Burj Dubai. The towers are clothed with an articulated skin recalling the veils and layers of traditional Islamic architecture. As the figures rise, they bend inwards, forming two deep, shadowed arches up to the sky and beyond – toward the top of the Burj Dubai.
