Design and Sustainability Honour Award from the American Institute of Architects (AIA) for the technologically complex headquarters.
Dubai Science Park (DSP) is the region’s first free zone community that serves the entire value chain of the science sector, dedicated to supporting entrepreneurs, SMEs and multinational enterprises. Since its inception, the community has grown to almost 300 companies of all sizes in the life sciences, energy and environmental sectors. Armed with stellar ambitions, Dubai Science Park aims to be the vibrant platform of choice for businesses to innovate and progress in a truly dynamic community setting.
The Headquarters Complex complements DSP’s existing facility in the heart of Al Barsha. The Complex is composed of two high-rise office towers, which will offer standard and premium office spaces with views of the Dubai skyline. The towers are bridged by an elegant structure named “The Jewel,” and will accommodate an innovation center and retail facilities. The Complex is expected to be one of the world’s largest LEED-certified buildings, demonstrating the community’s commitment to sustainability and environmental-friendly practices.
Dubai Science Park’s headquarters will play a key role in enhancing local capabilities and driving growth in the R&D sector. Through providing the tools and space necessary, the community will bring innovative concepts to market and reduce the dependency on pharmaceutical imports in the region.
Concept design is created by American specialist architect firm CUH2A.
