The development is designed as a mixed-use district that serves as headquarters to the d3 community, envisioned as the hub for emerging local creative talent in the UAE. The architecture is defined by the use of repurposed shipping containers designed to preserve its raw, industrial form. As a development in the Middle-East, local influences were adapted in the form of container wind towers, which promote natural ventilation within the site. Integrating traditional Arabic neighborhood planning in the design, 75 containers were stacked and configured to define outdoor “pockets” that serve as a courtyard for each building. These outdoor courtyards are welcomed to the interior of the building by means of full-height windows punctured on the shipping containers which frames the outdoor landscape and the view of the Dubai skyline.
