The architects of Ellington’s DT1 project, Perkins + Will, won “Large Architecture Firm of the Year” award during the eighth annual awards ceremony of the Middle East Architect Awards.
DT1, the Ellington Group’s residential property based in Dubai, was voted the ‘Best Residential High-Rise’ owing to its design, from the inside out.
The state-of-the-art residential project in Downtown Dubai, 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 DT1 building provides an opportunity for residents to take advantage of its layered exterior by creating inner spaces that come alive with natural sunlight.
The award was received by Steven Charlton, Principal Managing Director, Perkins+Will Middle East at the 2015 Arabian Property Awards, which took place on the 12th of November 2015 at the JW Marriott Marquis in Dubai.
