“We are working with Webb Yates & Esther – Engineers on several high-end villa projects that are highly contemporary with pure geometry and architectural massing.
Matthew and his team use the latest BIM technology to accurately model all the structure to make sure that the structural design works seamlessly with the architecture. They work closely with us to develop a clear understanding of the architectural concept and their attention to detail is to ensure the architecture is delivered without compromise.
Their structural specifications and workmanship requirements from the main contractor, affords us the confidence in the structural design and performance.”
“ANARCHITECT has collaborated with Webb Yates & Esther engineering on a number of selective projects in the Middle East since 2017. We first approached WYEE to be part of a project consultancy team because they showcased a body of work that demonstrated their ability and structural creativity to help deliver great architecture and this quality is something we hold in high regard as a progressive and design driven practice.
The projects we have worked on together have been both technically and contextually demanding for private, high-profile clientele. Throughout the process, WYEE have shown great technical ability, creativity and professionalism to deliver cohesive structural design solutions that have pushed design boundaries and explored innovative construction methods with ingenuity’ ”
"Usually in every project, the architect formulates an intention and the civil engineer provides the structural solution to complete the process of design. It is rather usual that these two parameters act competitively towards each other and the initial intention often diminished by the structural resolution.
In our case, despite the difficulties created by the distance, those two parameters, through the collaboration, were merged. Step by step, with the contribution and the interaction of the two parties, the architectural intention and the structural resolution defined each other and in the end the building’s frame became an integral part of its aesthetic by suspending the top floor over the open spaces beneath, allowing at the same time an open facade towards the view."
