Design Philosophy
Surrounded by stunning waterfront promenades, luxurious hotels, and resorts, this vibrant community offers residents a tranquil island getaway with world-class amenities. Oceano itself is designed to provide an oasis of serenity, valuing privacy with over 3000 square meters of private shoreline.

The seamless integration of glass facades, ultra-thin frames, and dynamic lighting creates an ambiance of elegance and tranquility. Each residence is thoughtfully designed, with rounded curves and panoramic floor palettes that frame breathtaking views, merging the indoors with the natural beauty of Al Marjan Island.

Design Characteristics
Oceano encapsulates timeless sophistication through its architecture. Its form, free from corners, creates a sense of fluidity, while private terraces extend from the front facade, fostering intimate connections to the surroundings. The uppermost floors house exclusive sky villas, offering cascading living spaces, private elevators, outdoor terraces, and unmatched viewpoints for an unparalleled sense of luxury.

A defining feature of Oceano is the animated skin, allowing for a constantly changing facade and dynamic shape, ensuring each unit boasts a unique appearance and quality sea views. Despite its futuristic design, a rational mindset guided the entire process, maintaining a regular structural grid to ensure seamless services and a logical modularity for the residential units.

Elevated on a 5-meter-high podium, the building's grandeur is enhanced with a mezzanine-level main entrance, providing a stunning arrival experience. Concealed at the lower level are services, parking, and amenities, preserving a pristine drop-off and porte-cochere.

Sky bridges connect the two 18-storey towers, hosting luxurious duplex units,  and the Cuban Cove sky lounge. Finally, the crowning jewel is the top floor infinity pool, offering a breathtaking view of the sea. Oceano seamlessly merges innovation with functionality, offering a lifestyle that is both cutting-edge and refined.

The design incorporates energy-efficient solutions, responsible resource management, and a harmonious relationship with the natural surroundings. Local regulations, site constraints, and budget considerations are carefully addressed to ensure the feasibility and compliance of the project.
