Botanical Garden design – Dubai

Office of HH The Crown Prince of Dubai

A Botanical Exhibit was designed for the Office of HH The Crown Prince of Dubai, which was meant to be constructed as part of HH The Crown Prince of Dubai’s private Zoo development, located on one of his properties just south of Nad Al Sheba.

Botanical Exhibit

The Exhibit features three climatic zones.

  • 590m² Tropical Garden
  • 590m² Mediterranean Garden
  • 590m² Temperate Garden

Including the remaining spaces, the total area of the Exhibit is 2570m².

  • 190m² Entrance lobby
  • 155m² Auditorium
  • 45m² Offices
  • 100m² Propagation facilities
  • 100m² Technical facilities
  • 210m² Circulation space

MEP integrated design

Because of the extreme temperatures in Dubai, the technical aspects to maintain the right climatic circumstances of the three Gardens were taken into account from the start. PV-cells integrated in the double glazed units in the roof are not only filtering the light and reflecting most of the heat radiation from the sun, but also generating the necessary energy to power the HVAC systems.
