Eco-Arish is a proposed accommodation facility for the Abu Dhabi Authority for Culture and Heritage (ADACH) staff restoring old forts in Liwa Oasis. Our aim was to deliver a self-sustaining design solution, with no carbon emissions. This project will be the first contemporary building using date palm tree and stems (arish) as building materials, a method that has challenged our structural engineers. our team has identified and thoroughly tested a structural design that ensures this natural building material meets international building standards. In addition to using local materials, the facility is designed to be self-sufficient in energy and water. our sustainability experts proposed several renewable technologies ensuring this, such as a solar pumping system, a solar desalination plant providing water, a solar energy system providing electricity, and an air tank to store surplus energy. Any waste generated will either be recycled or consumed on-site, with no need for any landfill. Upon completion our sustainability team is carrying out a study of the performance of solar panels in sandy, desert conditions.

The architect's design for Aylesbury Theatre is an interpretation of the surrounding countryside, with its woods and rolling hills. In keeping with this concept, its concrete core, which house the auditorium, is surrounded by a timber frame. The auditorium stands at the heart of the building as if at the heart of the forest. One hundred and ninety geothermal piles make up the foundations. In plan, the building describes a curved shape similar to a pond, resulting in undulating forms for both the façade and roof. The extensively glazed façade is supported by external timber fins. Tree-like, these taper outwards from base to crown, also supporting the stainless steel clad roof overhang. The fins are restrained in places by fixed timber louvres.
