KEO’s progressive design accentuates modern architecture in the Emirates
The recently completed IT College provides over 34,000 s.m. of unique facilities for 1200+ students, giving the UAE University a unique platform for advanced teaching, learning and administrative resources. The central component of the project is a magnificent transparent atrium connected to glass bridges and open elevated walkways. Cutting through all levels is an impressive 22 meter high ‘learning street’ which is naturally lit by skylights. The main teaching classrooms, IT stations, libraries, study halls, staff facilities, offices, cafeterias and student lounges branch off of this and the complex is divided in half for male / female students. The unique design of the A/C system allows air supply via raised floors which also conceals electrical components. KEO provided Architectural, Structural, MEP, Interiors and Landscape Design, while the PM/CM Division provided Supervision Services.
