Al Seef is situated in the historic heart of Dubai, located along the Dubai Creek adjacent to the Al Fahidi Cultural Historical Neighborhood.

The Contemporary Area of the wider Al Seef development spans around 670m of the waterfront.

The scheme has broken down the retail and F&B amenities into a series of standalone pavilions fronting along the shores of the Creek.

The pavilions fully open out onto the promenade, blurring the distinction between internal and external spaces, providing the canvas for exciting, active, and bustling retail and hospitality concepts.

10 DESIGN was the masterplanner and lead design architect for the Contemporary Area within the larger Al Seef Development.

The site has been developed in 2 phases: Phase 1 accommodates the retail, F&B, and marina spaces while Phase 4 accommodates hospitality and F&B spaces along with the car parking structures for both phases.

Phase 1 accommodates standalone retail and F&B pavilions which face Dubai Creek and the new marina. The architecture enhances the destination lifestyle experience anticipated for the Dubai creek. The pavilions incorporate building elevations that are allowed to fully open out, blurring the distinction between internal and external spaces.

External dining terraces are incorporated into the design solutions, extending the internal tenant spaces, providing the canvas for exciting, active and bustling retail and hospitality. Private roof top terraces affording exclusive dining experiences with raised views over the waterfront and creek side promenade.

Phase 4 accommodates a 200-key Zabeel House and a 150-key Zabeel House Mini both by Jumeirah. Public amenities and pool decks are elevated to the roof top as exclusive destination facilities benefiting from elevated viewpoints across the waterfront and back over the whole development.

Extending from the hotels, intricate structures create separate F&B water pavilions that spill out and into the creek, stepping across a terraced, cascading landscape for a distinctive take on waterfront dining opportunities.

The retail and F&B element within this area of the development draw inspiration from the traditional arcade and souk typology in a contemporary adaptation. The meandering pathways between small stacked pavilion structures create an intimate scale and alternative shaded environment to add to the variety and richness of the visitor experience.

The design solution brings together multiple different elements of different scale and function into a cohesive district through a common design vocabulary and palette of materials.

The massing of the 2 hotel buildings are fragmented into a series of smaller blocks to create a series of courtyard spaces and more intimate relationship with the public space. This reduction of the scale of the hotels also reflects the scale and intimacy of the urban grain of the adjacent Al Bastakiya District.

The hotels massing continue to drop in scale as it reaches to the waterfront terminating in a series of dining pavilions that sit in the creek offering views back to both the development, the creek skyline opposite.

The individual design personalities of each retail and F&B pavilion incorporates crafted and layered façade solutions, resulting in a rich variety framing the visitor experience. Beneficially each pavilion has a distinctive identity; however a common palette of materials and consistent approach to the precision of detailing ties together the separate elements to form a coherent solution across the whole district.

The separate pavilion buildings are sited and orientated to maximize the physical and visual connections to the waterfront and to help define the external spaces and interconnections between lifestyle concepts.
