Arcadia executed the design of Misk Apartments in Aljada by Arada. Misk homeowners will benefit from modern and spacious interiors, with the ability to choose different sizes and layouts to suit their lifestyle. The Misk Apartments are composed of four buildings and vary from G+11 to G+12 floors with a total of 462 apartments. They are sited in a particularly prominent part of Aljada as all buildings have excellent vantage points from which to observe the development’s main attraction, the Central Hub, designed by Zaha Hadid Architects. The top part of the buildings are treated as a minimalist mass that accommodates two penthouses in each structure. The main feature of the Misk Apartments is the horizontal louvers that form a permeable skin, which in turn creates shading areas in the balcony as well as privacy from those looking from the Central Hub.
Ideally situated in a nine storey building, Misk Apartments are designed with couples or families with children in mind with a selection of floorplans that includes one, two and three bedroom apartments, as well as magnificent penthouses. Aljada, a masterplanned destination covering over 2.2 square kilometers that is set to transform the future of Sharjah, the United Arab Emirates, is a $6.5 billion development. Aljada is an all-encompassing district that comprises considerable retail, leisure and entertainment options, in addition to a wide range of residential and commercial offerings, such as a dedicated business park. The Aljada masterplan is carefully designed with walkability and wide green spaces in mind, allowing residents, workers and visitors the ability to live, work, play and be entertained within an all-inclusive and self-sustained precinct.
