GHURAIR RESIDENTIAL & VEG MARKET COMPLEX
Given that the surrounding sites of the Vegetable and Fruit Market are generally warehouse sheds, as well as the underused Fish Market, it seemed that an unique opportunity existed to create the Market complex with apartments as a dignified setting for the Market place itself. Thus, the plot in Deira, Al Muteena road was chosen as it was centrally located and reachable from most of the places in and around Dubai. Apart from introducing a residential zone equivalent to the neighboring buildings, and thus re-introducing a well known urban form characteristic of Dubai city, it will also accommodate approximately 350 car parking spaces below the building in the basement including the surface parking at the rear end along with loading unloading platform and storage area for each shop.

It is designed at the entrance of the house so that only that part of the house is visited by others and there is no interference with the privacy of the rest of the house.
Developed in the early 80s, the Ras Al Khaimah poultry farm needed an extension and thus the second phase of the poultry farm began. Today, poultry farm is a big industry in itself. There are two types of farms. One is raising farm where chickens are raised and the other layer farms, where the chickens lay eggs. This poultry farm not only had layering house but also a rearing house and a manure plant . The project was a challenge as the design had to accommodate all machine rooms and be designed in harmony with phase 1 and planning a group of buildings and their surroundings to present a wholesome image is as important as planning for productive efficiency.
