Abu Dhabi airport proposals put on hold

  • Comment
A Middle Eastern client has put two British architects' designs for a new 'Royal Jet facility' in Abu Dhabi, on hold, it has emerged.

Air operator Royal Jet has put both shortlisted practices Pascall + Watson and Reid Architecture's proposals for a new 'business aviation terminal' in the United Arab Emirates state on the back burner.

The two practices were shortlisted late last year, but Reid Architecture was told that both its project ( pictured above) and Pascall's ( pictured below) would not be taken forward in the near future.

This, a spokesperson claimed, was because the proposed site for the facility had changed.

Pascall + Watson said that its proposals for a new facility were designed to provide a shield against the 'fierce climate' in the United Arab Emirates.

According to the airport specialist, customers would arrive at the terminal under shade and enter the building through discrete private lobbies.
