Shams Voxel Tower
Shams Voxel Tower is a 38-storey residential tower, completing the cluster of buildings that flank the elliptical marina of Reem Island, with extraordinary views of the Arabian Sea. The architectural concept, designed by the world-class architecture and interior design firm dwp, was inspired by a method that identifies a basic module to govern the architecture and interiors.

Used in various combinations, these modules create a variety of residential apartment options. Achieved by means of pixilation, the mass is broken into smaller habitable modules - the voxel (a 3D pixel). These voxels spiral the tower, creating apartments with variety of views towards the Arabian Gulf, the marina and the promenade. The tower sits on a 3-level podium, with townhouses on the upper 2 levels, overlooking the promenade next to the marina, while the ground level houses retail and public activity.

Together, the gross floor area is 64,868sqm, with the residential tower reaching 145m in height. Construction is slated to commence late 2011.
