Capital Gate, Abu Dhabi, UAE
Phase 3 The Capital Gate ‘Feature Tower’ is high quality iconic building located on the exhibition site. It is distinguished by a dramatic steel and glass facade with a striking organic form. With its cantilevered tea lounge and open air pool deck, it provides a unique presence on the skyline of Abu Dhabi and creates a memorable identity to the exhibition centre. A sculptural stainless steel ‘splash’ flows down the front and at low level forms the hotel entrance canopy, flowing over the existing grandstand and acting as a solar shading device for both the building and the grandstand seating.
The Feature Tower is an exemplary example of RMJM’s design and in-house engineering capabilities.
