On track for handover in mid-2019, Mamsha Al Saadiyat is one of the first residential projects situated within Saadiyat Island’s buzzing Cultural District – home to iconic structures such as the Zayed National Museum, Louvre Abu Dhabi, and the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi. CallisonRTKL designed this award-winning project and aimed to apply clean architecture to compliment the beauty of the surrounding waterfront location. Its use of floor-to-ceiling glass façades allows for contemporary, luxury, beachfront living on five separate plots featuring 461 luxury homes, restaurants and retail outlets. The development is also located alongside a pristine 1.4km white sandy beach fully open to the blue waters of the Arabian Gulf. CD+M provided specialty lighting design of the overall site, façade and selected interior spaces under CRTKL’s direction.
