Dubai / UAE / 2011

The P-17 Tower is a stunning, 77-storey mixed-use tower development which is set to grace Sheikh Zayed Road in the neighbourhood of Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC).


The design of the super-slim P-17 Tower gives the illusion of constantly changing its appearance with the movement of people and the sun.


Standing tall at 370 metres and just 30 metres wide, the tower’s darker front facade rises from the ground and twists slightly in a striking glass and steel design. Behind the elegant form, increasingly taller blades gently splay outwards, conveying the appearance of layered planes which dynamically move sideways to produce a challenging, gravity-defying form.


The design integrates contemporary architectural thought, with innovative engineering solutions.


At the mid-building level tower, an angled atrium cuts straight through the tower filling a void over several storeys, which serves the five-star hotel and the serviced apartments.


Above the hotel are premium residential apartments and two floors of VIP suites which enjoy incomparable views of Dubai.
