Location: Port Of Fujairah, Fujairah, UAE
The existing engineering building at the Port of Fujairah, definitely needed a proper facelift. Normally such building would be demolished to be replaced with a new one. Since renovation contributes to the sustainability concept, re-use of the existing structures and adding square meters in the form of an additional floor was an ideal solution. Within a tight budget, we have been constructed to scrutinize the existing building and to devise a concept for this.
The existing building consists of two parts; one part is constructed in 1985 and the other part in 1989. The idea is to extend this building with additional square meters and by adding a new floor on top of the existing and old structure, we had the idea to combine all structures into a new building.
The gray collar which can be seen, melts the structures together into one building. The projecting portion on the corner emphasizes an orientation point, it is manager’s office.
