J U W A N A ABU-ZEINAH


HELLO! My name is Juwana Abu-Zeinah. I’m an interior design graduate from Algonquin College aiming to work in interior design projects that have a positive impact on society and the environment. When I’m not designing, I like to travel and discover the world, learning about world culture and design. I’ve been to many countires around the world including France, Italy, Malaysia, UAE, and Oman. I believe traveling to be important because we learn about and experience different cultures, which is beneficial to us as designers when we are designing multicultural projects.

IT TELECOMMUNICATIONS OFFICE SITE ANALYSIS

DESIGN INTENT

The site is located at Bausher St in Muscat, Oman. It is surrounded by Bausher Dunes on the NorthEast side and is adjacent to two building landmarks in Oman: Mohammed Al-Ameen Mosque and the Sultan Qaboos Sports Complex.

The design of the office space adopts a network concept. The design merges between a formal and informal workspace where standard modular workstations are found, but alternative work areas are designed in the space for mobile work. Essentially, the design of the office adopts an activity-based workplace design. Formal and informal meeting rooms and areas are designed along with facilities such as an entertainment lounge and kitchenette, and prayer rooms.

Currently, there is no paved road leading to the site so the only way to reach it is through driving on sand.

Site analysis

The design aims to create an engaging atmosphere where movement is emphasized through strong, diagonal lines and utilization of suspended staircase, slide, hanged hammock pods, and the integration of energy-harvested floors and office systems.

TOH EMERGENCY WAITING SPACE RESEARCH Acute care emergency waiting rooms lack dignity as patients wait for long hours in a confined and crowded space that does not accommodate their physical and psychological needs. When patients and caregivers wait for hours in a confined space without any seperation from other patients, they become more stressed. With stress, the immune system become weak and patients (and caregivers alike) become more vulnerable to hospital acquired infections and illness. The integration of the six biophilic elements into the design of acute care emergency waiting rooms reduces patient anxiety and stress levels, lowers blood pressure, and stabilizes heart rate, which ultimately reduces patient propensity to hospital-acquired infections and illness.

LITERARY & CALLIGRAPHY CENTER DESIGN INTENT The 100 year-old building was chosen to be rehabilitated into a literary and calligraphy center that could engage the Omani society and tourists with Arabic calligraphy and poetry. Sufi dancers have been a mutual interest and fascination for poets and calligraphers throughout history. Their whirling dance represents the many worlds and constellations, where inner beauty and aesthetic appearance are joined together as the symbolic representation of infinity in a mystical union with the divine universe, expanding and contracting like a breath. This circular motion is like a never ending spiral that leads to the dissolution of the self into divine beauty as well as the mystical knowledge that floods the heart of every seeker, leading to the search of inner illumination.

INTERNATIONAL WELL BUILDING INSTITUTE OUTDOOR EXHIBITION DESIGN INTENT The outdoor park exhibition aims to introduce the public to WELL Building Standard - a certification standard beyond LEED that aims to set standards for building restorative building environments where quality of air, water, light, nourishment, mind, comfort, fitness, and innovation are prioritized in design, construction, and post-occupancy.

SHERWIN-WILLIAMS 2018 DESIGN CHALLENGE COMPETITION ENTRY: THRIVE LIBRARY DESIGN INTENT The design of the young adults library and bookstore is based on the idea of creating an abstracted jungle of interesting knowledge to attract young adults into reading books. Thrive Library features plywood-constructed animal shelves surrounding reading areas made from reclaimed wood and furry stools. However, the main design element of the project was using paint from Sherwin-Williams and using them in the project. In this project, the paint colors attract the readers to different reading materials and act as a wayfinding tool where the red-painted deers frame the cashier; the yellow unites the space and highlights the books on the shelves; and the various animal-painted shelves mark a specific animal type, featuring specific literature genres.


COFO DESIGN COMPETITION ENTRY MAPLE FURNITURE COLLECTION DESIGN INTENT The MAPLE COLLECTION chairs and coffee table are inspired by Canada’s emblem: the maple leaf. To me, maple is a huge aspect of Canadian culture whether it is used to make furniture or food. The maple chair and table initially started with the idea of the maple leaf, which were later sculpted and morphed into modern furniture pieces.
