  • 19. 20 Wahat Alkhartoum Urban Development Noon Consultancy 2009 | 2011 The project is built on 26,000m2 of prime land located in down town Khar- toum the capital city of Sudan. Noon was appointed as the PMC & Lead Architect, to implement the new Owner’s requirements regarding the complex, the super structure and the exterior envelope for the 4 towers were already constructed. The new Owner’s objective was to create a one stop business facility that would attract the investors by providing a 5 star hotel with a high-tech business center, premium office spaces, a luxurious shopping center and a city center landscaped area. The project team included me as a project architect, in charge of the in house engineering department, the building operation firm, and the nominated interior designer firm. The first challenge was to accommodate the 5 star hotel requirements in the existing two office towers buildings connected to a central core services area.This required the adapting of 14 new shafts in each of the existing floors to provide services to the wet areas in each room. Providing a swimming pool was the second challenge, utilizing the malls main foyer roof to locate an open air swimming pool in between the towers by using a new steel structure. The pool was accessible from the second floor terrace. A separation feature wall was added to divide the terrace, provide privacy and form seating areas for both the pool area and the food court out door seating area. 01 Main alwaha
  • 20. 21 02 Elevations Design & Construction Adminstration The scope was to re-design elevations for the two floor podium out of the 14 floor complex to reflect the new Owner’s vision and the function change of the complex. The old elevation solution with massive glazing, curtain walls with unjustified cost. The new concept was to distinguish the lower floors and create a horizontal solid mass bounding the entire complex and forming a base for the upper towers. A combination of granite and marble were used as finishing cladding. Vertical thin decorative aluminium columns were used to divide the horizontal mass and create a visual connection with the vertical parts of the towers. In between these columns, staggered dummy horizontal windows were engraved in the solid granite mass. A frame-less tempered glass system was used for these windows to consolidate the concept. A Transparent hand-railing system was used for the terrace to be the visual transition from the solid base mass to the tower light finishing. This design provides a modern architectural solution that unified the complex facades while addressing the environmental requirements and significant cost reduction & energy savings for both building and operation costs.

  • 21. 22 03 Landscape Design & Construction Adminstration The scope was to re-design a 13,000m2 landmark & a public entertainment hub above the underground parking area that would serve both the complex and surrounding areas and reducing the cost in the previous design. Leasing with the landscape architect, structural and MEP designers, I was leading the design process. A simple yet coordinated & efficient layout was selected to accommodate the different functional requirements and to reflect diversified landscaping techniques. The main challenge was to provide enough depth for different planting requirements, without exceeding the allowable structural loading that was considered in the previous design. Accordingly, a crater shape was implemented on a stamped concrete finish to simulate the natural stone effect. The second challenge was to conceal the concrete structure below and create a natural landscape effect. Limiting the expansion joints in the green areas under planting soil and implementing a cost effective waterproofing system for the massive wet area where some of the techniques used. Water features took the same crater shape for design unity, with a special designed fountain on the hotel side to reflect the function change and identify the area. The colonnade was selected to define the main plaza and to present a historical theme in the complex. To minimize the dead loads on the lower structure, a lightweight steel structure was used that presented a chal- lenge in achieving the required ancient finish. A mixed technique of both painting and stamping was used for that purpose. Outdoor lighting, LED luminaires were used in the entire landscaped area to reduce the complex operational cost.

  • 22. 23 Major changes had to be implemented internally to the previous design as well to fulfil the new functional requirements, mainly re-designing the horizontal circulation, adding new vertical circulation elements and adopting new shafts to the existing slabs. Transforming the existing twin office building structure with a central core area to a 5 star hotel, where the existing core was used as guests lifts, required two additional service lifts to serve all 14 floors. Two of the four U-shape fire escape stairs were used to add the lifts using a steel structure. From the drop point and parking area in the basement one, another new lift was added to provide access to the business center, health club and outdoor swimming pool on the second floor. The mall area in the previous design extended throughout the entire built-up area in basement one, ground and first floors. %20 of the existing mall layouts had to be used in the hotel and the remaining %80 had to be rearranged to accommodate the new tenant layout. A new food-court area was added on the second floor of the twin tower office building to benefit from the large terrace area.Two new escalators on a steel structure were added to enable smooth access from the mall area on the first floor. The main skylight in the mall central foyer was replaced by the new swimming pool structure. Therefore, an artificial sky painted ceiling was used for simulation. 04 Interior Architecture & Design and Construction Adminstration Wahat Alkhartoum Urban Development Noon Consultancy 2009 | 2011
  • 24. 26 Al Nour Convention & International Trading Center Having a prime location on the Aljamaa street in Khartoum, just one block from the Nile river and the magnif- icent view of Toti island, the client was looking for a building that Would fulfil the market demands. Our response was converting the market research data that resulted into a modern convention and international trade center. The form addressed, reflecting the smooth visual transition from the three floor podium convention center, to a twin tower high-rise international trade center. Special steel mesh was selected for that purpose to form semi-enclosed spaces for the terrace. The terrace space was used as a landscaped area with marvelous views, mainly because %100 of the site was to be developed due to the high value of land. The podium architecture was restricted by the historical nature of the area and the local regulations, therefore, block techniques with void corners were implemented to allow integration with the modern designed twin tower. SSD Bank Commercial Building In response to the client program of constructing a commercial building with two different functions, one being high end office space the other being luxurious showrooms. The concept was to create a transparent form with a solid mass at one edge to identify the vertical circulation and provide the maximum rentable areas, connected with a horizontal mass that separated the show room areas from the office spaces. Horizontal shading devices were used, parallel with the building form and to reduce direct sun rays. Commercial Buildings Projects Noon Consultancy 2008 | 2011
  • 25. 27 Bank of Khartoum - Aldmazine Commercial Building Commercial Buildings Projects Noon Consultancy 2008 | 2011 Upgrading the city center of the Aldamazine city in the eastern south of Sudan was the aim of the project, by providing a mixed-use complex of hotel space, shopping center, bank branch and a semi-shaded food-court area to enhance the social interaction and separate the bank branch from the complex. An in depth environmental study was carried out to minimize the energy consumption, due to high temperature from the direct sun and the strong seasonal winds. As a result, a triangular shape was selected for the building plan with reduced glazing surfaces.
  • 26. 28 Being the biggest bank in Sudan, bank of Khartoum had hundreds of branches scattered all over the country. The majority of these branches were built decades ago and were not designed to support the leading edge banking systems and technology were not up to modern aesthetical standards. Another problem was that each branch was designed separately by a different designer. Noon was hired to prepare and implement a standardized architectural image to reflect the bank’s long history and support future technology growth. Accordingly, the concept was to identify the main elevation by two solid stone finished walls representing the bank’s long history. In between the entrance is formed as a modern designed steel and glazing facade. The steel plate elements concept was inspired by the sugar cane plantations in the country, as the bank had a leading role in supporting and enhancing this sector. Internally, a combination of high technology and local materials were used together with modern furniture. The remodelling project for the main branch in Portsudan the country’s gate to the Red sea and the biggest city in the eastern region. My task was to prepare the as built-drawings for the existing branch and implement the new theme. The old facades were completely replaced and a complete remodelling for the interior space.The challenge was to solve deficiencies In the existing layout, where %70 of the spaces were not utilized, 10 of the space was a customer waiting hall and scattered not functioning back of house offices. As a result one new floor was created from the wasted space as a rentable office space. Bank of Khartoum - New Corporate Image Noon Consultancy Bank of Khartoum - Portsudan Branch
  • 27. 29 Bank of Khartoum - New Corporate Image Noon Consultancy Aljamhoria Branch 2010 Remodelling the branch in a historical building limited the facade area and solutions, even though a complete representation of the new theme was developed with minimum effect to the building. Internally a complete new layout was implemented, utilizing the double volume hall for the customer service and waiting area. Adding 8 teller stations with a compacted back of house offices with a newly constructed, safe room and all the required services.
  • 28. 30 To lead the competition, Bank of Khartoum initiated the Cash Office project. The concept was to provide teller service coverage for all the prospective customers. Working with the client I developed the minimum spaces required to accommodate their functional requirements, according to with the new theme. The client rented two floor spaces in the center of Khartoum. 77m2 of ground floor and 105m2 of mezzanine floors. Accommodating all the functional requirements was accomplished. To provide spacious visual effects different techniques were implemented, such as an open layout, transparent staircase and feature elements. Almshtal Branch 2009 This was the first branch to implement a new theme. The existing two floor building was selected by the bank and a total remodelling took place. The requirements were to provide complete banking facilities in the ground floor with two main areas. One was the customer hall and the other a teller area with compacted back office facilities. A luxurious elite banking area with private teller facilities was located on the first floor. A new steel structure extension for both the ground and first floor was implemented.The entrance, modern steel and glazing designed facade allowed flexibility to cover the slab edges of the structure, by utilizing the main sign board and canopy for that purpose. The solid stone walls formed the location for both the ATM and deposit boxes, that are accessed 24 hours out-side the main entrance to minimize the operational power consumption. Transparent partitions were used internally, together with simple, modern designed furniture, that would reflect the bank’s vision towards its customers and to create a spacious atmosphere.

The client was fascinated by the ancient Nubian architecture theme, therefore he hired me to provide a luxurious resort. A courtyard layout was selected to provide the required privacy by the client and inline with the Nubian theme. Separate blocks, small windows, decorated parapets, higher dominating main entrance building defined by columns were the main elements defining this architecture. As a freelancer my job was to provide facade solutions for an existing concrete structure of 5 typical slabs. The structure was 1600m2 with central enclosed spaces surrounded by terraces and many columns were exposed to the facades.The slab layout at the edges had many sides and it was a very complicated structure. Differently colored, lightweight surfaces were used to create modern cost effective solutions addressing all the deficiencies. The client had major changes required to transform his already designed residential building into a luxurious palace. As the project’s design architect I performed the schematic design phase, including complete facade redesign and 3D visualization services. The concept was to implement the Andalusian architecture theme. A new open sky garden was introduced in the basement to provide natural lighting and viewing opportunities for the indoor swimming pool located there. New materials were introduced to the building, including natural stone and GRC decorated panels. The staircase as part of a feature wall was utilized as the dominating architectural element shaped to represent the center’s helping hand policy. Natural lighting was provided for all the center spaces. The client required maximum usage of the land. He needed to locate his family residence on the ground floor with completely separate entrances from 6 rentable apartments in the upper floors and 2 rentable commercial shops. Feature walls were used to identify the building architecture. A Simple architectural form was selected with maximum viewing opportunities from the family halls in both the ground and first floors. Sustainability techniques were considered in the early design stages, 35cm wide load bearing clay brick walls were used to provide maximum thermal insulation, glazing openings were reduced.
