Dubai Opera House

Iconic concert hall with sensational sound

Dubai Opera will be a 2,000 seat, multi-format, performing arts centre located within The Opera District in downtown Dubai. It will host a variety of performances and events including theatre, opera, ballet, concerts, conferences and exhibitions. The building is designed to resemble a dhow, a traditional sailing vessel, in which the ‘bow’ of the structure will house the opera’s main stage, orchestra and seating, while the elongated ‘hull’ will have waiting areas, taxi drop-off and parkings.

We were appointed by Emaar Properties to undertake a peer review of the acoustic design of the Dubai Opera House. This involved checking the design criteria and assumptions to ensure suitability followed by a full review of all the building services, architectural, structural and interior design schematic design drawings and specifications with relation to the acoustic integrity.

This process identified potential areas for cost and time savings. In addition we provided the client with the confidence that the design was robust, having been thoroughly checked by an independent party with local experience.
