Octopus [House in Dubai] in Dubai, United Arab Emirates by STIPFOLD

Wednesday, October 4th, 2017

Article source: STIPFOLD

The glass house is condensed with multiple rooms of various functionalities and in order to balance the busyness, it is executed with minimalist approach. Transparent walls convey a sense of unity of internal areas, as well as wholeness with the external space and amplify the contrast between hot climate and the cool interior. For achieving a privacy in a single room, it may be skirted with remotely controlled white panels, spread with simplified oriental ornaments. Shadows cast by these traditional outlines augment the particular character of the house.

O-14, a 22-story tall commercial tower perched on a two-story podium, officially opened in 2011, and comprises over 300,000 square feet of office space for the Dubai Business Bay.  O-14 is located along the extension of Dubai Creek, occupying a prominent location on the waterfront esplanade.  With O-14, the office tower typology has been turned inside out – structure and skin have flipped to offer a new economy of tectonics and of space.

DMMRC – Dubai Maritime Museum & Research Centre in United Arab Emirates by Studio Niko Kapa

Wednesday, November 16th, 2016

Article source: v2com

Relating to both the sea and the city and in constant dialogue between them, the building is an extension of the city to the sea and vice-versa. Conceived as a continuation and a transition through the wide public space, the building dives into the ocean and merges with it. It develops as a triangular sharp form, which concentrates the public routes to the museum, through an inviting shape that draws visitors to the entrance and distributes them to the interior.

The exhibition is located in the atrium among the laboratories of the Borouge Innovation Center; the atrium is now clearly divided into two parts by a vertical connection block.

Our idea is to unify these two areas through an interactive path that can catch the attention of all levels, from student to technician.

THE HIVE PAVILION in Al Ain, United Arab Emirates by Rabatanalab

Sunday, June 14th, 2015

Article source: Rabatanalab

The hive becomes an integrative component of the current master plan “Ipogea”, developed by the city of AL Ain. The study proposes trees rendering the area a more attractive natural setting. Additionally we designed a pavilion which runs parallel to the highway limiting the spread of the urban encroachment. This pavilion becomes a venue for future exhibitions in a “nature-oriented” atmosphere. The pavilion is an hexagonal structure composed of aluminum ribs. The design takes its inspiration from the shape of oases and beehives functioning as micro cities within the pavilion. Each hex consists of a carbon structure covered with a Kevlar fiber (woven with geometric patterns) and a protective insulation layer. We keep the environment cool by a piping system designed to cool both the interior and exterior with fine-mist water spray. To contribute to the interior comfort, the floor is suspended and ventilated. The structure is extremely light and designed to be easily mounted; each hex is autonomous from a structural point of view and is removable since it is bolted to the lightweight platform that supports it

JDA were commissioned to work with local architects A2Z to design and formulate a master plan for a 9 hectare site in the west area of Dubai city, close to international airport. JDA are responsible for the concept and design brief, with A2Z responsible for local design and technical brief. The completed master plan is 3.5m ft2 of new development and community. 70% of the development is residential apartments and duplex facing the parkland to the east. The central zone has a hotel with serviced apartments, shops and restaurants surrounding a piazza. The site runs east to west and can all be accessed by pedestrian ways through gardens, courtyards and climate controlled zones, with parking and utilities in the basement areas. JDA have designed a modern, sustainable development with local influences taken from traditional Emirate architecture. This includes a mosque, medical centres and nurseries. Mirdif is a gated community with all facilities for living in this harsh environment. Planning consent has been granted by Dubai Municipality. JDA have now embarked on detail design and tender for this project.

Part of this identity is defined by the local desert climate and landscape.
