Designed by the world famous architect, Norman Foster, who is known for the iconic Hearst Tower in New York, the Index Tower's design reflects the urban grid of Dubai. The tower consists of 25 floors of office space at the bottom, and 40 floors of residential units above that to take advantage of the views and 12 penthouses crowned at the top The penthouse is characterised by straight lines and grey hues, true to Sir Norman Foster's style.
It is designed to minimise adverse climatic effects on the building. It is orientated so that the East and West cores shelter the floor plates from the intense glare in Dubai. Furthermore, shading devices are used on the south facade to minimise the effect of solar gain.
