  • Seawater cooling, photovoltaic cells and wind turbines at roof level help the building set the standard for other energy-efficient buildings within the UAE.
  • The unique form of the building ensures that solar gain is substantially reduced.
  • The building is covered with gold-coloured titanium crystal which make it shimmer with reflected light.
  • The building's skin has been designed to counter solar gain by 90%.
