The Monarch Dubai RMJM's newest offering aims for timelessness. One of the key tasks in the design brief given to architects RMJM for its project at One Sheikh Zayed Road was to make the most of its unique location at the entrance to Dubai's iconic main thoroughfare. It's a mandate that project architect Enzo Messina believes RMJM has achieved in creating The Monarch Dubai and its neighbouring office tower. Foremost in his mind when developing the initial concept was using the site to represent a transition from old to new-from the low-rise environment of Bur Dubai to the modern elegance of the towers lining Sheikh Zayed Road. At the same time, it had to compete with a few of the city's major icons, namely the Emirates Towers (designed by RMJM's regional director Hazel Wong) and the Burj Dubai. The form To achieve this, Hazel Wong, Enzo Messina and their international team decided on an L-shaped configuration that would firmly demarcate the line between old and new by positioning the higher office tower as a curtain to create a physical termination from Bur Dubai. The Monarch Dubai hotel tower is oriented to face Sheikh Zayed Road and while it makes a definitive design statement by itself, Messina says its true elegance will be fully appreciated once the neighbouring towers have been completed. "At the moment it's a bit like a smile with a few teeth missing," he says. A product of the combined vision of Wong and Messina, timelessness was a key element of the client's brief and a driving force behind the final product. "This is what you get with good architecture," says Messina. "For a great example, one only has to look at Mies van der Rohe's skyscrapers of Chicago and New York that were built in the 1950s." They were built so long ago but still make a major design statement today. With The Monarch Dubai, RMJM has created separate but related buildings with strong lines, which, according to Messina, is a relative rarity on Sheikh Zayed Road. "You see a lot of recycled ideas there, but we have gone for a very bold design that works in both sun and shade." "It's the goal of all architects to use light to its best advantage, so you see the reflections more than the buildings," explains Messina. The strong lines are continued at night by the use of lighting to accentuate the facade transition on the office tower, which is then projected skyward toward the stars. "Even at night there is strong competition for attention from a design perspective. We've chosen to use only simple white lighting in keeping with our overall minimalist approach," explains Messina. The materials In keeping with the overall engineering requirements of the unusual building configuration, RMJM chose a mix of materials that are both simple and complex. High-performance glazed glass and aluminium are strongly contrasted by the use of textured marble. The marble is a geological oddity that dates from the Jurassic period and features fossilised remains of creatures from around 180 million years ago. The buildings seem to be connected visually but, in fact, they are independent towers, kept separate to maintain integrity in the event of seismic activity. There is an illusion that the two towers are joined structurally by a 29th floor ‘Sky Suite' but, in fact, the suite merely cantilevers from the hotel tower and supports no load transfer. Similarly, the seemingly solid aluminium arms that bisect the frontage actually retract and rotate to manage ?1m of movement in the unlikely event of a major earthquake. In an effort to ameliorate the effects of the sun, high performance glass was chosen for its ability to cut thermal transmission by 90% and increase the hotel's air conditioning efficiency. The frontage Despite its location on one of the busiest traffic routes in the Gulf, clever landscaping has been utilised to create a sense of serenity, even amidst the gridlock. "It's the use of undulations that does it," says Messina. "You can see some of Sheikh Zayed Road even from the hotel lobby, but you can't hear the traffic noise and you certainly feel at peace and well removed from outside hustle and bustle." Creating a sense of welcome and wellbeing was crucial, as guests make the transition from the outside world to the lobby of The Monarch. To that end, the main entrance is made from limousine to lobby on the same level-there are no stairs to climb-contributing to its sense of accessibility and hospitality. The lobby also features a 14m waterfall, which flows through channels around the lobby and contributes to the overall fluidity of the interior materials. The signature element The marble floor inside the lobby is a geological masterpiece and one of the elements of the project that Messina speaks very passionately about. From a distance, the exterior stone work resembles a simple rough cast finish but, on second glance, the fossi

The Carr Hall renovation project re-used the existing Core & Shell of Carr Hall. On the exterior of the building, the new portico design incorporates plantings and open grid pavers, allowing water infiltration and reducing stormwater on the site. A new vestibule entrance improves energy efficiency as well as thermal comfort in the lobby. A new storefront at the entry incorporates low-E, double pane glazing with shading devices designed to reduce glare and solar heat gain in the lobby. The new lobby design uses solar-tube daylighting strategies and showcases a variety of green materials. High recycled content acoustic wall panel systems and FSC certified wood ceilings were used. A "Greenwall" planting system and an FSC certified Cedar Plank media wall is used to showcase work being done by the Environmental Sciences department. The lobby design also incorporates an Aquaponics display to be developed by the school. New corridors are designed to incorporate pin-up spaces and communal areas, and the skylights provide natural lighting and sky views. FSC certified wood doors with adjacent cork tack boards were incorporated to provide tack space for faculty members at their office doors. Corridor carpets help reduce corridor noise and are high-recycled content and low-emitting products. Classroom spaces use solar-tubes to provide daylight to interiors. Lighting fixtures are high-efficiency fixtures, used in conjunction with daylight & occupancy sensors to reduce energy usage. Lab casework is produced from FSC certified wood products. Bathroom fixtures were replaced with Low-Flow fixtures to reduce water usage, and the building is powered with "Green Power" through a college-wide initiative. New building systems are high-efficiency systems. Best practice ventilation & air quality systems was integrated, including CO2 monitoring and source control systems for eliminating harmful chemical fumes & pollutants. During construction, the contractor diverted more than 75% of all waste materials from the landfill, through re-use & recycling. Best practice Air Quality management plans were used during construction to ensure high air quality for post-construction occupancy.
