Criteria for the Exterior Design Award involves aesthetics and innovation. DAR's exterior is sporty, elegant, and high tech. The profile has a unique sense of contrast and homogeneity between the dark glass and the white balconies, providing a constant exchange in shape and lines between the two elements.

The biggest challenge, but also the highlight of the exterior design is the unprecedented glass surface of the superstructure, designed as one continuous surface stretching from the Main Deck to the Sun Deck. All the glass is glued to the structure with no use of mechanical fasteners, which requires a very high level of precision. Almost 400 m2 of glass was used on DAR's superstructure. It is not lightweight, but on the flip side it replaces the usual amount of metal of the conventional superstructures.

The specially treated glass affords the owners privacy from the outside and at the same time yields incredible views from the inside looking out. Views and a connection to the sea have been important design elements throughout.
