The design is derived from the folding of traditional Islamic fabrics and patterns. The complex consists of a series of wings arranged around a central covered festival space. A feature of the Abu Dhabi Ladies Club design is a series of large fabric roof forms derived from the petals of a flower. These roofs are made from a unique pattern using 2 types of PVC fabric; a solid fabric and a transluscent lace fabric. This design alows for areas of shade and areas of natural light.

The facades of the curved stone clad walls contain a distinctive window patterning. This pattern is based on the braching pattern of folliage and is derrived using computer generated ‘L-System’ modelling.
