2005 - Abu Dhabi’s Heritage mall is a contemporary building that celebrates the architectural heritage of the Gulf region and most specifically Abu Dhabi’s genuine architecture. This conservative building is not a mere replica of the past, it emphasizes on the architectural elements that shaped the city’s image and defined its style. The introverted four-stories building, inspired from Islamic cities, is composed of atria in which vertical circulations are located and spines which tie them together.
The roof of the mall is covered with tents which cover extended terraces of restaurants and cafes.
