Abu Dhabi : United Arab Emirates

Aldar Properties HQ

One of a kind

Aldar Properties head quarter is the world’s first circular office building – a one of a kind architectural landmark in the world.


The extraordinary circular shape that arises at Al Raha Beach in Abu Dhabi symbolise unity, rationality and stability. The creators of this exceptional building are architects MZ & Partners together with the consulting engineers Arup, that has for example Sydney Opera House and Beijing Olympic Stadium on their resume.

”Best futuristic design”

The head quarter is wrapped in diagonal steel grid and built with recycled glass, steel and concrete. At the Building Exchange Conference held in Spain it also became a worldwide known landmark when mentioned as “Best futuristic design 2008”.


Fagerhult are very proud to have been a part of evolving the Abu Dhabi skyline. We assisted with lighting layout and energy calculations and delivered lighting that emphasise the extraordinary shape. 9000 pieces of the recessed luminaire Indigo blends in naturally in the 110-meter tall building. Which creates a beautiful addition to the architecture on the different floors and it is also a delight to enjoy from a distance.

Meet high standards, LEED rated

Indigo has an uncomplicated and clean recessed design, combined with high efficiency and technical performance. The lighting satisfies the high standards according to LEED rating system and reduced the energy consumption in the building.
