Bee’ah has signed an agreement with Italian design practice Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel to provide bespoke furniture, fixture, equipment and interior design services for the waste management firm’s new headquarters in Sharjah.
Built by contractor Al Futtaim Carillion, the landmark building will be the first in the UAE powered by 100% renewable energy and is expected to achieve the Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum certification, the green-building standard's highest rating.
HE Salim Al Owais, Chairman of Bee’ah, said: “We have always prided ourselves on implementing best-in-class practices and forming alliances with global specialists to execute ambitious projects.
“One of our most ambitious projects to date is our new headquarters, designed by Zaha Hadid Architects. Through this agreement, we look forward to utilising their unique aesthetics to complement the design of the headquarters to achieve our vision of creating an architectural icon of sustainability.”
Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel, which specialises in the fields of architecture, interior and urban design, has built up an impressive portfolio of work that includes the interior design of Bulgari Hotels & Resorts in Beijing, Milan, London and Dubai.
Antonio Citterio said: “It is an incredible honour to bring our expertise in interior design principles to such a prestigious project. We have designed many acclaimed projects all over the globe but this project is unique for our company.
“It will simultaneously be a landmark that will stand the test of time as well as a monument to environmental sustainability, which is among Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel’s foundational values.”
