Marina + Beach Towers

Oppenheim Studio

Project basing on a standard module has allowed its shifted repetition to develop into the woven tapestry of the façade; a surface that responds to every nuanced shift of light, while providing critical protection from the intense sun. The building form itself becomes a device for luring cool breezes to spaces shielded from the sun, referencing the regional time-tested tradition of wind catchers. Inconspicuously and opportunistically the structure incorporates solar and wind arrays for the generation of some of this building's required energy. Sustainability is imbued throughout the life cycle, where intelligent planning provides innovative opportunities for energy and resource conservation, up-cycling, waste, and healthy building initiatives; where ecology and sustainability allow even greater guilt-free luxury.
