Hai d3 is a mixed-use community that serves as headquarters to the Dubai Design District, the hub for emerging local creative talent in the UAE.
With the need for a temporary facility to host community projects and events, it was crucial for the Hai d3 development to be flexible and able to accommodate quick assembly and disassembly in a sustainable manner. Integrating traditional Arabic neighbourhood planning into the design, the architecture was composed as a modular system, using 40-foot shopping containers in a stacking and layout arrangement.
The re-purposed shipping containers are also used as passive cooling “wind towers”, catching draft winds and directing them to ground level, Image Courtesy © Sadao Hotta

The project consists of more than 25,000 m2 in 5 industrial buildings. The design concept is to provide a welcoming image to users through the use of warm materials in the office area that are opposed to the materials used in the rest of the construction used in this type of buildings.
To reinforce this idea, the entrance has a large garden with trees welcoming and there are some small green strips between each of the 5 naves.

Bestseller is a world-wide fashion group with shops in over 70 countries, featuring well-known brands such as Vero Moda, Jack & Jones, Only, Pieces and several others.
The new office complex for about 800 employees is therefore intended as a showroom for Bestseller’s design-driven corporate identity, and resembles a varied flotilla of buildings at different levels, which are connected by a series of outdoor spaces like atria, courtyards, terraces and roof gardens.
The mixture of office buildings and outdoor spaces creates the impression that this is a town within a town. The complex, surrounded by canals and lakes on all four sides, forms the entrance to the new, urban district on the waterfront in Aarhus, Denmark.
