London-based firm to design phase 2 of Dubai Sustainable City

London-based Baharash Architecture has won the bid to design the second phase of Diamond Developer’s Dubai Sustainable City – a 46 hectare, 500 villa eco-development slated for construction at the junction of Al Qudra and Emirates Roads in Dubai.

“The vision of the city encompasses three main pillars of sustainability: environmental, economic and social,” Diamond Developers said in a recent statement.

Phase two of the project involves building a mixed-use zone for occupants of the100 energy efficient, solar-powered villas and townhouses that should be complete by the end of 2014.

This zone will include a Juma Mosque, an Institute for Ecological Engineering, a museum & planetarium, a “Green” School for K-6, an Eco-Resort, Country Club and Equestrian Center.

Baharash Architecture, which will open a new office in Dubai to prepare for the project, beat out designers from the USA, Lebanon, Jordan, the UK, and the UAE to win the bid.
