Ocean Heights, located in Dubai Marina, is a 310-metre residential tower. The design evolved to maximise views toward the ocean with a deliberate twist on three of its faces. This allows the units, even in the back, a view toward the water beyond.
A challenging aspect of the design was accommodating the client’s strict requirement of unit layouts within a changing envelope. What resulted was a rational four-metre module, which tracks its way down through the entire building and only changes at the facade. This also considerably simplified the structural system of the project.
