World's Best 2017-2018

SWITZERLAND

SWITZERLAND 2017-2018 Swiss Bureau Interior Design t: +971 4 277 0402 e: info@sb-id.com w: www.sb-id.com Adeli Interior Architecture & Partners Ltd t: +41 21 312 80 20 e: info@adeli.ch w: www.adeli.ch Renowned architects, Joakim de Rham of Swiss Bureau Interior Design and Siavosh Adeli of Adeli Interior Architecture & Partners have designed the award-winning Room of the Emirates of the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland. One of the largest rooms of the Palais des Nations, it required a complete refurbishment to comply with current technical standards for conference rooms. Interpretation, fire safety and accessibility for disabled persons were among the project’s key objectives. Represented by the Ministry of Presidential Affairs, the client brief requested that the architects integrated strong symbols of their country into the design. The brief also sought to combine functionality and cutting-edge technology, with an aim to merge innovation and cultural heritage in line with architectural trends apparent in the UAE over a number of past years. The project’s concept was born from the idea of creating a sensation of openness and natural luminosity as the existing Room had no natural light. By allying themselves with the latest technology, the architects developed a ‘living’ ceiling whose geometry draws its sources from the United Arab Emirates’ emblem. The ceiling includes LED technology, enabling the ‘sky’ to transform from dawn into dusk in real time. The entire Room was also designed in the colours and scenery of the Emirates. A woodwork of sand-coloured blades with undulating effects on the periphery subtly suggest windblown sand dunes, while the back of the presidential zone has a deep blue marble wall with sparse greyish slits, signifying the foam of the Persian Gulf.

SAUDI ARABIA The Esmeralda Sports & Leisure Center is an award-winning, premier lifestyle facility located in King Abdullah Economic City (KAEC). The goal for the developers, Emaar, The Economic City (EEC) was to create an unparalleled health and fitness destination for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA). Set over 53,000m² with a built-up area of 14,700m², Esmeralda will act as a hub for the Al Murooj community and also serve the growing population of expats and Saudis in KAEC Industrial Valley, Jeddah and Rabigh. The exterior of Esmeralda is a highly modulated massing of building forms designed to provide visual interest from all sides. There is no rear to the development; for instance, the sports block to the east with its large interior space was articulated in such a way so as not to overwhelm the neighbouring homes. The northern social space has also been designed to provide additional screening from the sports block. The interior features a visually grand clerestory due to the prominent and impressive climbing wall that is visible even from the parking lot. This visual space is segmented just above the lobby by the diagonal lines of the fitness floor above, creating an improbable dynamic space within the colonnaded axiality of the clerestory. By providing an unparalleled health and fitness destination in a safe and luxurious environment, EEC has created a legacy for the continuing wellbeing of KAEC and the broader KSA. 2017-2018 Emaar The Economic City 2338 – Bay La Sun – Juman Street Unit No.1 King Abdullah Economic City 23964-6992 Kingdom of Saudi Arabia t: +966 12 510 6600 e: sales@kaec.net w: www.kaec.net BEST INTERNATIONAL LEISURE DEVELOPMENT Esmeralda Sports & Leisure Center by Emaar The Economic City BEST LEISURE DEVELOPMENT ARABIA Esmeralda Sports & Leisure Center by Emaar The Economic City BEST LEISURE DEVELOPMENT SAUDI ARABIA Esmeralda Sports & Leisure Center by Emaar The Economic City International Property Awards 33
