The Kensington Krystal is essentially an office building with a small amount of retail space. The design concept of the tower is to create a unique landmark by adopting the idea of a dynamic "black crystal", which is very rare and valuable, standing at the marina harbor.
The building form was inspired by the Kensington logo - "K". The rising crystal tower gives an appearance of sharpness, elegance and energy. Its dynamic form commands attention along the waterfront. The tower envelope is carefully crafted to carry through this idea to form a series of harmonic proportions.
This grade A office tower will incorporate all the latest intelligent building features including building Automation System, Office/Communication System like raised floor and high-speed back bone network, Security and Fire Automation Systems etc.
The design won the Architecture Award of the Arabian Property Awards and is shortlisted as Finalists Project in the Future Commercial Category of the World Architecture Festival.....more
