Salloum Building
Saloum Building is an existing building on lot 1973 near AUH phase 2. The lot has been acquired by the University. The building served as a storage for Hospital archives for few years. Then the University decides to launch an international competition to build an annex to phase 2 related to it on basement levels.
At this level several problems arrised concerning connection of the 2 buildings regarding the legal point of view. Also the lack of parking spaces and the impossibility of creating parkings underground on lot 1973, allthese concerns, created a challenge for our office.Yet all these problems were solved to the satisfaction of the University.
Where HEAD was entrusted:
  • > Design Brief to building law and other requirements
  • > Consultancy
  • > Permit on lot 1973
  • > Permit on lot 3435 to connect throught basement level
