X Architects | Sham Sales Center | AbuDhabi

The proposed sales center provides a sensitive approach to the local ecology and landscape, especially to the fast depleting mangrove reserves of AbuDhabi. Extending and hovering above the existing mangroves and integrating them into its design, the sales center provides potential investors a glimpse of the nature oriented life style that can be expected from the Shams project.The form responds to the surrounding views and programmatic pressures of the project.The mangrove courts organize the program into different zones of activity and extends the users perception towards creating a symbiotic relationship with his surrounding environment.
