The design concept of Jebel Hafeet was inspired by the surrounding nature of Hafeet Mountain in Al Ain city, where the building is located at the summit making it a landmark for it to be seen from as far as the surrounding landscape allows.
This high-tech iconic building is surrounded by steps leading to the ground floor and the lobby opening its arms towards the western valley, to accomplish the highest levels of urban interaction, moreover; the entire lower part of the building is built with blocks giving it a traditional feel, while the tower embraces the water cascading downhill creating a flourishing and vibrant valley, thus challenging gravity, and playing physical and aesthetic senses.
