The Index, DIFC, Dubai
The main arrival was positioned to utilise the shade of this landmark tower in Dubai International Finance Centre (DIFC). The grand drop off plaza is located within the cooler microclimate with a series of stone walkways crossing over reflective water pools, to further create an oasis of calm. A stunning visual backdrop of an oversize water wall with entrance punctuating the water feature forms an impressive grand arrival to the scheme. An upper garden of mature palms and rolling lawns, create a landscape link to the above plaza level. Photographs courtesy of Foster+Partners.
