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

This project was created with the aim to respect the tradition but keeping the XXI Century spirit. From the beginning we thought that it was fundamental to defend the values and essence of the client as laywer from the historic center of Hondarribia, a nice village located opposite the French coast. Everything that this represents and is sensitive to its local identity and culture throughout the architecture has been respected. We are very pleased to be part of the history kept on these existing walls and we really wanted to let them be the main protagonist that coexists with all of us. At the same time, a powerful language code has been created to give the identity and personality to the business the same as the place where it is located.

We approached the design for this building from a position that questions the solutions currently being produced in Quito in response to the necessity of densifying the city with mid rise construction.
Can we as architects provide economically attractive solutions for the real state market while meeting the new standards set by the City Government for responsible and efficient construction? But most importantly how do we reconcile market interest that focus on the individual, hermetic apartment isolated as much as possible from the discomforts and complications of public urban living, with the urgent necessity for architecture to be the tool for place making in a disjointed, hard-edged city?

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.
