Derin Kinacigil: In response to Dubai's vision for a new Emirati living era, The Palm Residence seamlessly integrates tradition and innovation. Drawing inspiration from Old Town Dubai, the design honors Arabian villages with carefully articulated stepping volumes, contemporary mosque-inspired solar panel canopies, and 3D-printed mud walls.

The residence prioritizes a connection to nature via interior courtyards, gardens, and sustainable materials. Embracing eco-friendly principles, it aims for self-sufficiency in energy and water through features like evaporative cooling, solar panels, and wind turbines. The design reflects Dubai's dedication to heritage preservation while nurturing a sustainable future, establishing a model for modern Emirati living.
