A helical skyscraper that makes a distinct mark on the Dubai skyline, Cayan Tower is at once remarkable and subtle. The residential tower is a pure expression of the idea that a building’s form should directly follow its structural framework.
While the skyscraper’s 73-floor plates are all identical, each is slightly rotated against the story below it, resulting in a full 90-degree twist over the course of the tower's 307-meter rise. The benefits of this unique form, besides the aesthetic ones, are manifold. Wind load and solar heat gain are reduced compared to a rectilinear building of the same height and a greater number of tenants are afforded desirable views of the nearby marina and gulf.
Other tower amenities include Liv Nordic, an international health spa with treatment rooms, sauna, gymnasium and numerous catered facilities. The tower also includes a separate five-storey parking garage.
