Al Bidda Tower

By Subhi Kussad,

The tower is 215m high and twists 60 degrees through its height.  It also varies in width, being at its narrowest at the 14th floor and increasing in width so that the apex is wider than the base.

It provides commercial space and provision has also been made for a variety of other potential facilities including business centres, showrooms, restaurants, art galleries, outdoor cafés and a health club.

The 7 storey car park can accommodate 1000 cars and has direct underground access to the tower. The carpark design discreetly reflects and complements the unique diagonal elements of the tower.

The façade is formed from the utilization of an unconventional diagonal curtain wall accommodating progressively varying floor plates culminating at the top with an illuminated roof facing the Corniche.
