Ambient Tower Dubai- Thyssenkrupp by ZERAFA ARCHITECTURE STUDIO

 
January 20th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: ZERAFA ARCHITECTURE STUDIO

Za’abeel Park has been designed to showcase Dubai’s status as a regional center for the development of high-technology and IT industries through a unique mix of educational and recreational facilities. The development of these facilities within a large scale garden-park setting has created a multi-faceted urban space within the city center for both residents and visitors alike. This urban idea is fundamental to the “new face of Dubai” and the future development of the city within an international context. Within this spirit, the proposed “Emblem” tower for Za’abeel Park should be expressive of the confluence of these regional ideas, energy, and culture which define the modern city with an underlying emotional reference to a more universal iconography.

At an elevation of 9,000’ above sea level, the site of this modern chalet is an alpine meadow at the base of an inclined ridge 4,000’ below the summit of one of North America’s highest mountain peaks. The property, surrounded by a Lodgepole pine forest, includes a sensitive wetland ecosystem at one end and the remnants of an exploratory pit mine at the other. The main space of the three-bedroom, three-bath family retreat is glazed on three sides allowing a blurring of inside and out and providing expansive views of the rugged mountain ridge beyond and the meadow below.

The house where our intervention took place consists of a villa located in the seaside resort city of Costa da Caparica. This is a specific and surgical intervention in a highly deteriorated villa from the seventies. Although the refurbishment seemed urgent the financial contention demanded that the substantial architectonic intervention was limited to the 1st floor, attic and terrace over the garage, the rest of the house being renovated in a simpler and more convenient way.
