The UAE’s Ewan Architectural and Engineering Consultancy Fuses Timeless Design with Novel Technology

Ewan Architectural and Engineering Consultancy has recently won a Luxury Lifestyle Awards for Best Luxury Mixed-Use Architecture in Abu Dhabi, 2023 for its project, The Waterfront Mixed-Use Development in Al Zahiya.

Ewan Architectural and Engineering Consultancy is a well-known and reputable multi-disciplinary firm in the United Arab Emirates that was established in 2003. The firm has been providing cutting-edge architectural and engineering solutions for 21 years in Bahrain and the GCC region. Ewan has gained a reputation by seamlessly bridging between tradition and modernity in its projects to respond to time and place.

Ewan Architectural and Engineering Consultancy led by Managing Director, Eng. Yasser Yacoub, is a branch of Gulf House Engineering (GHE) – Bahrain that was founded in 1990.  Both GHE and Ewan have fast become the most prestigious and successful firms in the Gulf Region and the Middle East by focusing on enduring design solutions and creating inspiring places for living in order to maximize values for clients, and to respond to the site cultural and physical conditions.  This has been the result of a dedicated multi-disciplinary team guided by the visionary Principal Architect and Managing Director Ahmed Bucheeri and Managing Partner / Director Yasser Yacoub; who have been able to expand the firms’ capabilities locally and internationally.

A vision founded on the long history of establishment and concurrently strengthening position as a leading consultancy firm by gaining trust of a wide range of clients, exploring progressive ideas and thinking processes, investing in trainings and technologies, and collaborating with universities and professional institutions.

Ewan has undertaken a number of prestigious projects including: Master Planning & Urban Design, Mixed Use Development, Commercial, Residential, Education and Health Care, Hospitality, Religious & Cultural, Office, Government, Conservation & Revival, Landscape and Interior Design.  The approach has always been on promoting quality in the built environment by focusing on enduring sustainable design solutions and on creating inspiring places for living in order to maximize values for both the clients and end users.  This is performed to the highest standards of integrity, ethic and professional conduct.  Indeed, diversity is Ewan’s strength and pride: multi nationalities team, wide-ranging clients, assorted portfolio & worldwide projects.

An example of Ewan’s Mixed Use Development is the award-winning project of Al Zahiyah Waterfront Development.  The project enjoys a strategic plot on Al Zahiyah Waterfront near the Navy Gate; an important landmark of Abu Dhabi urban history. It is also centrally located at the crossroad of major developments including Abu Dhabi’s existing downtown area and the new growth areas of Al Maryah, Al Reem and Saadiyat Islands.

The design emphasizes on sustainable approach, iconic building and on maximum return of investment by having a proper mix of functions compatible to the location, market trend, and financial viability.  In addition to the basement, the project consists of a podium that accommodates, various parking areas, retail, F&B strip and town houses above overlooking the promenade and the sea. On Top of the podium, two residential towers rise up to 25 floors providing various flat types.  There are also 3 floating F&B that can be reached by pontoons from the promenade.

The Architecture abstracts many references from the site natural environment and most importantly relates the project to the sea at all levels.  It intends to develop high standard distinguishable project reflecting delicate balance of drama & simplicity, to provide a contemporary setting for great vistas of Abu Dhabi waterfront overlooking Al Mariyah and Al Reem Islands. The Project was sculpted to take the maximum benefits from the site location, its historic back­ground, and its proximity to the sea, as well as to provide a landmark where the ingredients of simplicity and innovation are creatively orchestrated.

The Waterfront project exemplified Ewan’s excellence in design, care for the environment, and the innovative use of technology.
