Capital Gate in Abu Dhabi by RMJM

Building Type: Mixed Use

Architecture/ Interior Design by RMJM
The Capital Gate ‘feature tower’ is a spectacularly cantilevered building which adds its unique form to the Abu Dhabi skyline. A dramatic steel and glass façade shrouds the 35-storey building which sits on 490 piles which have been drilled 30 metres under ground to accommodate the gravitational, wind and seismic forces caused by the distinctive lean of the building.
