Siemens’ Middle East Headquarters at Masdar City, designed by Sheppard Robson, has won the MIPIM Architectural Review Future Office Award.
Currently under construction, with completed due at the end of 2012, the building is pitching for LEED Platinum status.
Commenting on Siemens’ project, the judges said: “This is a thorough investigation of the design of large floorplate space in an extreme climate, with a well explained proposition emerging.
“The ambition for a LEED Platinum rating means the project will be followed by many designers and clients with great interest.”
Now in its tenth year, the MIPIM Architectural Review Future Project Awards celebrate innovative thinking for projects in the pipeline.
The awards take place during the MIPIM commercial property market in Cannes each March.
