Capital Gate by RMJM

April 11, 2018

The Feature Tower ‘Capital Gate’ (phase 3) is high quality iconic building located on the exhibition site. It is distinguished by dramatic steel and glass facade which lends a striking modern image.

The cantilever design also, provides a unique presence on the skyline of Abu Dhabi and creates a memorable identity to the exhibition center.

A sculptural stainless steel ‘splash’ flows down the front and at low level forms the hotel entrance canopy, fl owing over the existing grandstand as a shading device for the grandstand seating.

A free form internal atrium with a dynamic glass roof brings natural light and space deep into the tower. External lighting is designed to minimize both light pollution and energy consumption, based on a combination of low-level landscape lighting with facade lighting comprising a net of compact LED clusters integrated into the design of the steel glazing system.

Construction is in progress, and when complete in 2009, the building will be 35 storeys high. It will offer over 16,000m2 of high quality office space, as well as Abu Dhabi’s first Hyatt hotel, ‘The Hyatt@Capital Centre’. It will stand at over 160m tall.
