This project, currently in the design phase, involves the creation of a full-service broadcast center within the new headquarters of the Abu Dhabi Media Company. We drew upon native design elements from Abu Dhabi’s sunlit climate to create an interior oasis with wood elements, filtered light, natural and earth tones, and a high-efficiency cooling system. Brightly colored accents and designs that offer a modern interpretation of traditional Arabic architecture pay tribute to the culture and climate of the region.
All production areas are placed on the ground floor while post-production and newsroom facilities are located on the second floor. To provide mechanical systems and support to both floors, we inserted a mezzanine floor between the first and second stories.
