Residents can also indulge in uninterrupted views of Louvre Abu Dhabi and Abu Dhabi’s skyline at the elevated swimming pools, sunset deck, and gardens.
The lobbies and shared spaces within Louvre Abu Dhabi Residences will feature art and sculptures selected in close consultation with the Louvre Abu Dhabi.
