The British Council is a longstanding organisation that connects the UK to people around the globe through education, arts, culture and the teaching of English language.
In 2010 Hennessey had the privilege of building the new British Council centre. This involved demolishing the existing teach facility structure and constructing the new one inclusive of the interior fit-out as well as building a striking reflection pool at the entrance. The fit-out included 12 small classrooms, reception area, small kitchen and café.
The design along the façade highlights the UAE’s rippling dune landscape and the reflection pool and illuminated water cascades create a dramatic impact on a modest sized building.
Hennessey was proud to be involved in this prestigious and key project that provides opportunity to so many.
