  • When you see it from afar, you stay happy by how different that is all what you saw before. the reality is in UAE will see many buildings in its architecture, but this struck me... is very cute

  • Iconic building with some practical design flaws. The Aldar HQ is a landmark building in Abu Dhabi. I have been working there for 2.5 years and enjoyed my office - the view is amazing, especially at sunset. However, the design shows that practicability was not at the top of the agenda. The building is completely isolated at the end of Raha Beach boulevard. Accessing Raha beach mall for food requires a car or taxi ride, although it is just a few hundred meters away. Food options inhouse are few and expensive, given the quality. Lack of competition... Staff parking is insufficient, so that many team members need to park outside and walk or wait for shuttle buses. Most annoying: The AC had been designed for open space offices, and now turns small offices that companies create for their practical use into either freezers or saunas. It does not help that the buildings main glass surfaces are oriented East and West instead of South and North. So the AC cannot be calibrated well and your office easily turns from freezer in the morning to sauna in the afternoon. Or the other way around.
  • One of the Architectural wonders. Excellent Location. Must see in Abu Dhabi.
  • Iconic corporate building in Abu Dhabi with a very interesting Japanese coffee shop on the ground floor
  • Coin Building In Abu Dhabi one the best constructions in UAE
