In Sharjah, the capital of the emirate of the same name, it is not only the traditional buildings that provide examples of Islamic art and culture. As part of the Khalid Lagoon Island Development, a new artistic and constructional interpretation of the traditional designs of Islamic ornamentation was built on Noor Island. In this architectural gem, two intertwining, curving surfaces, covered in golden flowers, surround a glazed butterfly house and a café. In accordance with the design concepts of the 3deluxe design and architectural practice from Wiesbaden, this structure creates a unique atmosphere of light and shade in the building’s interior.

Butterfly House wins “World Architecture Award” in metal

The Butterfly House project, designed by the architects from 3deluxe, has won the “16 WAN Award” in metal. Impressed by the complexity of this design, the jury commented on the project as follows: “For a metal award, it’s very clever. When you get down to the interlocking of the fixings and filigree of these pieces, it’s amazing. A delicate, sweeping form echoes the characteristics of the inhabitants of this pavilion. The quality of the overall shape carries through to the detailing and finish of its elements, making this a worthy winner.”

The metal enclosure expresses the diversity of the material and its usage in structural, creative and aesthetic terms. Its supporting structure is remarkably delicate, with the 200mm structural members supported at just nine points.
