A Gateway to Petra in Wadi Musa, Jordan by Maisam Architects And Engineers

Tuesday, June 4th, 2013

Article source: Maisam Architects And Engineers

The city of Petra, one of the seven wonders of the word, is the foremost historical and archeological city in the region, carved out of the red-rose rocks, as the capital of the Nabataeans. ‘Wadi Musa’ town situated at the entrance of the old city has unfortunately gone through periods of terrible urbanism and witnessed uncontrolled development sprawl for years. Within this context the brief was to design a gate that streamlines the movement of visitors in and out of Petra.The challenge was in designing at a location that is chaotic in its setting; due to the lack of planning, The haphazardly placed kiosks and the scattered buildings which consist of a hotel, a visitor’s center and a proposed museum, components that are rich however, not connected visually nor physically on site, All positioned Next to a neglected Wadi (valley) that lost its character.

Today marked the official opening of Queen Alia International Airport, the spectacular new gateway to Amman. The airport has a highly efficient passive design, which has been inspired by local traditions, and is based on a flexible modular solution that allows for future expansion – the new building secures the city’s position as the main hub for the Levant region and allows the airport to grow by 6 per cent per annum for the next twenty-five years, increasing capacity from 3.5 million to 12 million passengers per annum by 2030.

Aqaba Hotel in Jordan by Accent Design Group

Tuesday, January 15th, 2013

Article source: Accent Design Group

Due to the small size of the land and the lack of landscape, the main concept in this project is to introduce a fifth façade that would act as a green area. From the existing grid structure and the basic volume that result from it, vertical and horizontal shiftings are operated in order to create a roof terracing. The terraces are landscaped to provide green areas, both private for the suites and public for the common spaces of the hotel. Cantilevers and openings are created toward the surrounding views.

Dutch Embassy in Amman, Jordan by Rudy Uytenhaak Architectenbureau bv

Tuesday, March 27th, 2012

Amman is a fast-growing city entirely made up of buildings in local natural stone: not only the well-off neighbourhoods but also poorer districts, and not only homes but also offices, hotels, museums and shops.

The Dutch embassy project concerns the renovation of an understated villa within a walled garden. The building was renovated because it was too small, and not earthquake-proof. Hospitality in combination with security formed the essence of the design brief. The entrances and the various consulate functions are situated on the ground floor in the original building layer, while a separate new structure above this houses the public section of the embassy. The building as a whole is given a unified character by a light-filtering portico made of local Jerusalem Stone.

The main concept in this project is to create a resort that naturally blends in this special site, by having the built up areas merge naturally with the surroundings, appearing as terraces in the landscape. These terraces, or strips, would contain the individual housing units, amidst a natural/artificial landscape of palm trees and water pools.

Techno Group Headquarters in Amman, Jordan by Symbiosis Designs

Symbiosis Designs LTD wins design competition to build Techno Group Headquarters in Amman

The building massing concept created a negative space that would be a certain interruption to the continuous street frontal façades; hence a specific and differentiated visual field is announced where the void becomes a captive. The negative field is the primary focal point staging majestic trees. Through the building’s homogenous material expression, the steel structural skin is also a grounding continuum and an assurance of rigor, visual noise reduction and simplicity.

Red Sea Institute of Cinematic Art in Aqaba, Jordan by Symbiosis Design Limited

Thursday, April 14th, 2011

‘In creating film one has to know how to take flight with light and understand the nature of its nature; to become a shadow and converse with ambiguity touching it but never gripping it; to understand the concept of contrasting harmony and how opposites bow to each other and sometimes dance in no less capacity than utterly consumed and locked souls; to travel with raw sound, whispers and sometimes silence itself and meet enchantment yet sense the most silent scream to be the loudest; to adopt the gentle breeze and learn a lesson or two on the prolific powers of gentle sways; to know how to become absolutely drunk and utterly intoxicated on a good conversation; to be able to ride chaos and make good sense of it; to use ice cold that is actually hot and make it unarguably cool; to know men and women who wear their hearts on their faces; to converse with the aura of objects and discover the person within each; to erase the line between genius and insanity and discover how to inexhaustibly deconstruct and reconstruct souls and suspend time in between, …’ Khalid Nahhas.
