2015 Opening of the Al-Muwiji-Fort in Al Ain, UAE
Four years after completion of the conservation works at the Al-Muwaiji Fort, the permanent exhibition opened on 15th November 2015. Our office was in charge of the technical planning and the site supervision for the conservation of the fort, being one of the oldest in the region. Besides the history of the building itself, the exhibition showcases the life and times of the ruling president of the United Arab Emirates Sheik Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, who was born in Al-Muwaji fort. The Qasr al Muwaiji is part of the Al Ain World Heritage Site, which was inscribed by UNESCO in 2011.
  Shelter construction for 'Royal Baths' Meroe, Sudan
The construction should protect the delicate archaeological site from the harsh desert climate. The building offers a new future orientated interpretation of proven local climate specific architecturally strategies using natural building materials. Massive earth-brick walls and a ceiling based on a series of Nubian vaults with small skylights creates a stable room climate without the need for technical installations.
