Marina Lowrise

The residential lowrise is One Architecture’s winning proposal in an invited competition for the marina buildings in the Ajman Freezone Marina development, in cooperation with Urbanberry. The project consists of two buildings with apartments and public amenities along the new marina.

The concept of this project is to create a small scale, lively environment in which all residences have a marina view and generous terraces. The building elements break the length of the quay and generate diversity. A louvered awning unifies the scheme, brings shadow and guides wind, stretching the time that can be enjoyed comfortably outdoors from one to three seasons and reducing the energy needed for air-conditioning.
