Hello!!!! Is there Anyone who can make an official comment, please???? The women of AD are waiting....the first quarter of 2011 has been long gone. This is very unprofessional...but why am I not surprised? They should have never allowed the other one to close before the new one was finished.

Feminity influences new facility for women in the UAE 

Tony Owen NDM along with UPA Planning have completed schematic design for the new Abu Dhabi Ladies Club. This project is currently being documented and construction will commence in April this year.

The 50,000 sq m facility will be located on the waterfront in Abu Dhabi city. The project will contain cultural, recreational and education facilities for women in the UAE. The Club will include a conference hall and accommodation, multi-purpose auditorium, indoor and outdoor sports facilities, indoor and outdoor swimming pools and a spa facility, women’s health facilities, craft and education facilities and childrens creche and recreation areas. The facility will also provide small business resources and training for women in the UAE.

The project is being constructed in 3 stages, is located on a beachfront site and will eventually contain a water park and extensive gardens.

The design is derived from the folding of traditional Islamic fabrics and patterns. The complex consists of a series of wings arranged around a central covered festival space. A feature of the design is a series of large fabric roof forms derived from the petals of a flower. These roofs are made from a unique pattern using 2 types of PVC fabric; a solid fabric and a transluscent lace fabric. This design alows for areas of shade and areas of natural light.

The facades of the curved walls contain a distinctive window patterning. This pattern is based on the braching pattern of folliage and is derrived using computer generated ‘L-System’ modelling. The building is scheduled for completion in the first quarter of 2011.
