...While unveiling his Abu Dhabi scheme in Kazakhstan

Foster + Partners has twinned Kazakhstan with Abu Dhabi with its latest mixed-use development in Kazakhstan

Foster + Partners has twinned Kazakhstan with Abu Dhabi with its latest mixed-use development in Kazakhstan’s capital Astana.

The project, called Abu Dhabi Plaza, is inspired by its sister project, the Central Market redevelopment in the Middle Eastern state.

According to Foster + Partners, Abu Dhabi Plaza is a ‘staggered matrix of buildings’ with a retail and leisure podium and a hotel ‘cluster’ at the base of the scheme which rises to form a series of office and residential towers.

The cluster formation – where the taller blocks of varying heights rise out of the matrix – has been designed to provide views for the different building types.

Foster + Partners has designed exclusive penthouses in the higher residential towers, providing dramatic views over the city, while the lower-rise offices and hotel are more inward facing to ‘reinforce the sense of place’.

The site will also incorporate a light rail station and a public square.
