AYA CHARIFE
PROJET A DUBAÏ

« Through Oriental Express » est un projet qui ambitionne de créer un lien entre l’Est et l’Ouest. (En anglais).

               

The link between the east and the west has come by cross roads to a contacting company in the heart of Dubai, UAE.
With multi prime and strategic real estate locations across the city, and abroad country.
The firm has an increasing number of international staff gathered under one umbrella to promote and construct these landmarks, the renovation process for the main office of the firm located in the heart of Dubai required extreme caution to incorporate the new theme and concept implementation due to the diversity of employees from different backgrounds and realms, the space itself required a massive renovation changing the previous constructed theme of a local

friendly corporation into a global sustainable unit connecting the east and the west.
Bridging the cultures initially started with my personal journey of transition and residence based on design projects from my home country Lebanon- Beirut a country of diversified seasons as well as geographic structure, tied to the historical Greek and roman archeology with the ancient Parisian architecture due to the impact of the French occupation, and not to forget the greater impact of the Mediterranean hospitality coming from such diversified cultural background that had stood still in various economic and political changes to the United Arab Emirates a dazzling Arabian oasis merging the sea and the desert’s beauty with contemporary architecture a fresh destination housing worldwide investors and corporations.
The concept selected had gathered the voyage of a traveler through most adventurous means of transmission from one area to another with vast differences. So has been the firm’s cultural diversity that reflected the power of connected east and west throughout required working procedures for the aim of a successfully delivered project. The interior process was to define those attributes and reassemble them with the flair of global unity embedded in the vision of the company.
This Radicle change had to combine certain material to express an everlasting connection between the cultures, the method of design usually found in all relevant projects and products are defined by a times future, where a space cannot be linked to certain definite era or time span, leaving the project in an idle ageless frame of time.
As you enter the space you envision all those attributes through the details of the laid mosaic custom made marble carpet of geometric rhombuses and trapezoids interlocking to form that infinite sense of solid grounds topped with the vibrant detachable waiting area of continuous linear motion connecting visually the seating area with the floor leading to the reception desk.
The side doors made of utter reflective transparency of back painted glass doors with the continued lines reaching the ceiling creating a limitless array of the boundless sky to creativity at work. On both dublicated sides of the doors leading to the offices and the auditorium the strips of aluminum linking the ground to the ceiling serving as a partition, holds privately the quick meeting area defined by doubled plexi glass as a seating method with the continuation of the strips forming an overall an invisible meeting area.
The ceiling area topping the waiting seats mirrors the mosaic grounds in a minimal approach with the laser cut aluminum panels custom made by size to perfectly fit the handmade marble mosaic with its outlines and serving as a dim lighting unit prior reaching the reception area, which is the guiding destination to every walk-in customer or client.
All lines and lightings lead to the main globe fractured reception desk placed on the variating heights of the matt finish marble tiles highlighting the privacy of that zone, the globe is surrounded on the inside with a cabinet unit on the back and the main reception front desk for the receptionist area while the back area behind the globe is an entire storage unit taking advantage of the space under the staircase leading to the top.
The lighting serving the reception area is doubled placing on top of every connected vertical arc to shed extra light on the shelving unit holding the achievements of the company, and the other lighting is a striped continuation of the vertical lines vanishing backwards to mimic a reversed process of every beginning.
Following the staircase leading to the first level which holds the entire circular motion of the reception area and is vertically open overlooking the ground level reception area is the custom made colored glass frames surrounded by the longitudinal peach color reflective glass reaching the ceiling tip of the first floor level.
the continuation of the lines from the arrayed circular reception to the staircase walls continues to the gypsum formation of the global express rail in the ceiling with a dangling full globe steel and aluminum laser cut structure with the doted lights of current and future planned destinations of worldwide projects all gather together to serve as a huge chandelier.
The walls coating was a light hazy reflective peach combination with abstract off-white to lightly merge colors formed by the space at noon when the sun walks into the space leaving all walls with a tendency to glow.
While the ceiling coating is dark gray with reflective lighter tone of abstract grey highlighting the front master pieces of both ceilings leaving the visitor and the working employee in a wanderlust sensation to be guided by the strips of light leading to the departments. Therefore the selection of material varied along with eternal durability.
All aluminum cladding sheets reformed to suit the lines of an infinite track to reach success, the combination of gray scaled color scheme along with warm lighting gave a hazy sense of the future path of success to be nearly accomplished by the working employee. With the tender peach colored reflective glass panels as wall cladding completing the detailed story of the reception waiting area, as well as the wooden structure in the first floor ceiling mimicking the rail of a fast express road to success.
We aspire to grow individuals out of their realms of comfort in order to leave a positive impact upon the lives of others through the most suitable concept for every project.
The aim is to maintain the mental impact of the concept and be able to envision and implement in an order that allows the visitor to sense the designer’s passion and tendency to sustain both visual and marvel creation.
