international firm sparch have designed ‘rihan heights’, a luxury residential development as part of the arzanah masterplan. located at the gateway point to abu dhabi island and the grand mosque district, arzanah is a 1.4 million sqm mixed-use development encompassing residential, commercial, sports and leisure components. 

the development is comprised of five residential towers with 854 units and 14 stand-alone villas. it offers the well-heeled resident various modes of luxurious living from single bedroom apartments to penthouse units to town house villas.

in a city where the average daily temperatures can soar to 40 degrees celsius, sparch seeks to reduce solar gain by wrapping the residential towers with horizontal fixed brise soleils, which shade and add character and definition to the facades. alternating sky garden pods across the two wings of each tower provide a touch of verdure in this arid environment and add vibrancy to the facades.

balmy palms, horticultural shrubs and tropical plants proliferate in the spacious development which also contains a clubhouse and a serpentine swimming pool. all in all, rihan heights offers the prospective resident the pleasure of living in a thoughtfully-planned and environmentally friendly milieu.

now under construction, rihan heights is scheduled to be completed in the first quarter of 2011.
