Project Details:

The Opus is commercial tower in the Business Bay district of Dubai which designed by the award-winning architect Zaha Hadid. It is a lively and contemporary business focus designed to emerge as the business capital of the region. The area is perfect for a strategic regional or international headquarter for multinationals and even local corporations.

Even with its extravagant façade, the building interiors have been particularly designed to give unrivaled time effectiveness for the vertical transportation and an internal space efficient office floor plate with over 87 per cent space efficiency.

Inherent to the design of the tower is its stunning lighting system. While the floating cube itself will be a striking sight in daytime, the void would come alive at night. Then the highest floor which is located above the 50-meter bridge connected between the two towers will feature all the relaxing and inventive features of the OYSTER idea of the developer, including a Tranquility Zone, a beach deck with reflective pool, shaded roof terrace, media zone, and a gym.

Each of the towers starting from the lobby has its own core. The towers will be serviced by one concentrated core. Service lifts are provided for both towers as are contemporarily designed communal restrooms and small pantry facilities for each tower.

In addition, vertical mini atriums can be carved out between the edges of the slab and the façade, which would make for interesting niches or efficient connectivity between floors. A generous amount of powerful elevators working at optimal speeds will convey office goers to their desired flows efficiently and in style.

With the unique design of The Opus, it gives us an impression of a glowing cube hanging over the ground. While it appears as a united mass, the cube is in fact three towers combined creatively.
