Rising from the desert sands like a scene from Alien, the organic-look BEEAH headquarters designed by superstar architect Zaha Hadid achieves net zero emissions


Architect: Zaha Hadid Architects (ZHA)

Construction: Al Futtaim Construction

Powered by its solar array and equipped with next-generation technologies for operations at LEED Platinum standards, the new BEEAH Headquarters has been designed by Zaha Hadid Architects (ZHA) to achieve net zero emissions and will be the group's management and administrative centre that sets a new benchmark for future workspaces.

The 9000m² BEEAH Headquarters has sustainability at its core with a high percentage of locally procured materials and is equipped with future-ready technologies to enable operations at LEED Platinum standards with net-zero emissions and minimal energy consumption.

Glass reinforced fibre panels reduce solar gain while slab and glass cooling regulate interior temperatures for optimum comfort. 

On-site water treatment filtrates waste water to minimise consumption and its solar farm charges Tesla battery packs to meet the building’s energy demand throughout each day and night.
