SVENM wins competition to redesign Al Ghurair University in Dubai
SVENM Architecture and Design, a consultancy specialising in architectural concepts, design detailing and build, has won the competition to re-design and provide full retrofit services for Dubai’s Al Ghurair University in Academic City.
The design practice was selected by the university’s board on the basis of their conceptual vision, past work and attention to detail.
“SVENM undertook a period of extensive research before starting the conceptual design work that won the competition. The proposed spatial environment reflects the university’s future–facing ambitions by re-considering the architectural impression of the campus and addressing the needs of its student body,” says Sven Mueller of SVENM.
The announcement of this project concludes a search involving a competition among reputed UAE design and architecture firms and reflects the impact of the UAE Ministry of Education’s focus on development and growth in the education sector for Dubai 2020.
Construction for the interior and external architectural interventions across the 20,000m2 site is expected to begin this year.
