About Silverene Tower A

Within the master plan of Dubai, the Silverene residential complex is situated in close proximity to offices, retail, and transportation as part of the greater mixed-use development of the Dubai Marina area. The twin towers stand as a recognizable part of the city due to their unique design and aesthetic; however, the layout of the building is highly efficient and takes advantage of economies in repetition of elements and forms.

In addition to the form, the towers also employ several other methods to reduce construction time and cost while improving performance and overall experience. The floor plates were optimized to include a variety of residential units, but also allowed for a high-efficiency usable area of 80%. The glazing system was mostly unitized, meaning that the thermally broken curtain wall units were manufactured off-site and installed with much less effort. The post-tensioned slab design also increased the span capabilities while reducing the overall depth of the slab.
