pritzker prize winners RCR completes first residential tower project in dubai

built on the east crescent of dubai’s exclusive palm jumierah, this year’s pritzker prize winners RCR arquitectes have unveiled their first residential development: the muraba residences. the project follows RCR’s approach of designing buildings from the inside out.

an uninterrupted view across the ocean and the dubai skyline is one of the features that the 46 apartments and 4 penthouses inside the muraba residences have to offer. RCR arquitectes uses a restricted and uniform palette of materials, developed to a high-degree of quality to ensure that each of the rooms invoke and embody their own presence. the architecture itself is conceived as an artwork for living, sitting on the boundary between building and sculpture to create a humble yet refined residence that contrasts its more extravagant neighbors.

inside the apartments, an airy and luminous atmosphere is created. balconies and floor-to-ceiling glazing frame the sea, the sky and the trajectory of the sun. the project’s name — ‘muraba’ — is derived from the arabic word for watchtower, a term that has inspired the building’s form. altogether, the custom-made elements, high-end finishes and minimalist aesthetics work in harmony to allow the project to work with the surrounding nature.
