Abu Dhabi City prepares itself for the completion of Abu Dhabi Ladies Club
Construction on Abu Dhabi Ladies Club by lead consultant UPA and sub-consultant Tony Owen Partners is progressing well and is on track for completion this February. The 30,000 sq m project has been designed specifically for the female population of Abu Dhabi, with many overtly feminine flourishes throughout, for example include large fabric roof forms derived from the petals of a flower. This flora is further echoed in the branching pattern of foliage scattered across the windows embedded in the curved stone clad walls.
When completed in 5 months' time, the cultural facility will offer a range of cultural, recreational and educational facilities to its users. A 1000 seat function hall, conference hall, multi-purpose auditorium and accommodation are coupled with both indoor and outdoor sports facilities, swimming pools, a spa complex, women's health facilities and a children's crèche. There will also be the opportunity for women to use the small business resources and training provided onsite.
