And finally… Dubai tower takes root
The design of a new residential project in Dubai has taken root and branch inspiration from the Banyan tree.
European real estate developer R.evolution said Eywa, its first residential project in the UAE, is the result of the company’s “years of research into human nature, the embodiment of over 20 years of experience in creating unique buildings and environments that promote the well-being of their residents at all levels of perception”.
A striking aspect of the chosen design concept is the visual Banyan tree façade with roots that are visible from the outside, symbolising the building’s deep connection to nature. From every angle, the building’s façade appears to be alive with greenery.
LEED Platinum and WELL Platinum certified, Eywa features a selection of 48 2 to 5-bedroom waterfront residences with sizes ranging from 3,064 to 16,256 square feet.
Designated areas will be devoted to shared spaces and amenities including a chef’s table, 3 pools and a library, crystal gardens and state-of-the-art gym, spa, indoor and outdoor cinemas, private waterfalls and pools.
The development is scheduled to be completed by 2026.
