Zaha Hadid Architects' Bee'ah HQ in Sharjah, UAE, has been designed in response to its natural environment. The new building is informed by its desert context as a series of dunes orientated to optimise the prevailing Shamal winds and give its interiors high quality daylight and views whilst limiting the quantity of glazing exposed to the harsh sunThe two central dunes of the headquarters building intersect and connect via a courtyard - an 'oasis' inside the building enhancing natural ventilation and maximising indirect sunlight to the spaces within.
