    Axiom Town is a combination of five major functions: executive offices, a research institute, a knowledge center, a hotel, and a retail sales center for Axiom Telecom in Dubai. The act of connecting is core to the message of Axiom, and the project provides an architectural metaphor for this vision. The dominating theme of the project is the bridge-like span

    connecting the four departments, with meeting functions and retail organized along the span.

    This design allows for the metal and concrete frame to be interwoven with warm wood tones, soaring ceilings, interior water features, terraces, and gardens under the bridge. The project consists of 17,720 square meters of offices, including

    almost 3,000 square meters of connecting meeting rooms, break-out spaces, and lounges.

    At the twist of the building, the outdoor plaza/promenade connects all the functions and the main entrance to the parking garages. The plaza is open to serve not only visitors to Axiom Town, but also people from the Dubai Silicon Oasis and from

    all over Dubai.

    short distance of the main source of employmentthe UAE Civil Nuclear Power Program. Connected along the natural waterfront, each district features pedestrian paths that feed toward the sea, where residents can enjoy a variety of aquatic

    Eco Poi



    The sales center at Saadiyat Island is composed of a cluster of tropical-inspired buildings, including a clubhouse, chalet, administration office, pool lounge, and other amenities. A revision of the existing layout allowed a beautiful and cost-

    effective transition to a sales center complex. The existing building was preserved, with the exception of the windows, which were enlarged to open the view to the Gulf.

    The juxtaposition of a clean, modern interior with the existing Balinese-style roofs, rough sawn pine exterior faades, and

    Meranti wood doors allows the sales center to have both pleasing aesthetics and seamless functionality.
