Masdar HQ

Masdar HQ

The Masdar HQ design successfully combines passive design with active system strategies and renewable energy sources to accomplish a model example of an energy-saving office building. The HQ development can be regarded as a trailblazing project for the UAE, in so much that rather than considering sustainability strategies as something of an afterthought, the entire form of the building has been conceptualised with sustainability considerations at the very forefront of the design.
