Ellington’s prestigious residential property project DT1 in Downtown Dubai, was voted the ‘Best Residential High-Rise’ during the eighth annual awards ceremony of the Middle East Architect Awards owing to its design, from the inside out.
The state-of-the-art residential project covers approximately 20,000 square metres and rises to a height of 72 metres.
The tower rests on a podium which will feature luxurious amenities and residences that boast private gardens. Apartments with various bedroom configurations are part of the tower, with large four-bedroom penthouses occupying the topmost floors.
Featuring an elegant but understated façade which reflects the local landscape of the region, the D1 building provides an opportunity for residents to take advantage of its layered exterior by creating inner spaces that come alive with natural sunlight.
In addition to the best high-rise category, the architects of Ellington’s DT1 project, Perkins + Will, won “Large Architecture Firm of the Year” award.
The award was received by Steven Charlton, Principal Managing Director, Perkins+Will Middle East at the 2015 Arabian Property Awards, which took place at the JW Marriott Marquis in Dubai.
