Lightbulb ADIC Headquarters in Abu Dhabi

Aedas has won an international competition to design a landmark development for the Abu Dhabi Investment Council (ADIC). The project will transform a total site area of 11,500m2 with a unique architectural design that is consistent with the UAE’s ‘2030 Development Plan’.
Utilising state-of-the-art advanced modelling and sustainable design techniques, Aedas’ design for the dual office tower complex will act as a gateway to the city, with the two buildings rising to 150 metres. The project will provide world-class accommodation for over 2,000 employees.

The design brief was based on the desire to create a landmark building which would reflect the underlying cultural tradition of Abu Dhabi, together with the standing of the Investment Council.
Design Concept

The design concept derives from traditional Islamic patterns and includes a diaphanous ‘mashrabiya’ which will protect the most severely exposed parts of the building, contributing to a projected 20% reduction in the cooling load to ensure a sustainable and efficient building. The ‘mashrabiya’ has been conceived as a dynamic façade which will open and close in response to the sun’s path, contributing towards a LEED certification.
