BEAU­TI­FUL DUNE-INSPIRED HEAD­QUAR­TERS DE­SIGNED FOR EN­VI­RON­MEN­TAL FIRM IN UAE

Ekaruna - - News Round Up -

Zaha Ha­did Ar­chi­tects have de­signed an in­cred­i­ble build­ing, tak­ing in­spi­ra­tion from the nat­u­ral beauty of sand dunes. The build­ing is to house the head­quar­ters of the Mid­dle Eastern en­vi­ron­men­tal com­pany, Bee’ah, in Shar­jah. The 7,000 square me­tre build­ing will be home to the ad­min­is­tra­tive and public ac­tiv­i­ties of the com­pany, which spe­cial­izes in waste man­age­ment. The pro­posed build­ing will be pow­ered en­tirely by re­new­able energy sources, in keep­ing with the na­ture of the com­pany. The two largest dune shapes will house the man­age­ment of­fices, visi­tor fa­cil­i­ties and ad­min­is­tra­tion depart­ment. Parts of the build­ing’s struc­ture will be con­structed us­ing re­claimed ma­te­ri­als sourced from both lo­cal con­struc­tion and de­mo­li­tion waste.

The pro­ject is to be a col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween Zaha Ha­did, engi­neer Buro Hap­pold and en­vi­ron­men­tal con­sul­tant Ate­lier Ten, in or­der to min­i­mize the wastage of ma­te­rial and energy con­sump­tion.
