International architecture and design firm Perkins Eastman recently unveiled the design of Al-Maktoum Accident and Emergency (A&E) Hospital, the newest and Accident and Emergency Hospital of its kind in the UAE.

“Based on our experience with large-scale complex care facilities, we believe that the Al Maktoum A&E Hospital will create a new standard for innovative, patient-centered care, in the UAE,” says Jonathan N. Stark, AIA, Principal and Managing Director of Perkins Eastman International.

Chosen by the Dubai Health Authority and the Department of Health and Medical Services (DOHMS) to create an advanced A/E hospital, Perkins Eastman designed a facility capable of providing immediate care for minor- to high-level trauma. An ambulance receiving area is directly linked to a surgical trauma operating suite and a diagnostic imaging unit with MRI, CT, and X-ray capabilities.

Continued homeowner interest in eco-friendly features and building materials Print E-mail
Tuesday, 31 March 2009 08:27

As the housing market continues to suffer, demand is declining for upscale products and features for kitchens and bathrooms. There is also a greater emphasis on accessibility and universal design to make home life easier and safer for an aging population. Renewable materials and products that promote energy efficiency are still growing in popularity.
 

Residential architects have reported the weakest business conditions in the four-year history of this survey, indicating that the housing market is not yet showing signs of recovery. These findings are from the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Home Design Trends Survey focused specifically on kitchen and bathrooms in the fourth quarter of 2008.
