Dubai Cruise Terminal, which will be located in Port Rashid, is planned to extend Dubai ports capacity with 2 mega vessels and to be extended to 5 vessels be establishing another 2 terminals in the near future. We have faced many challenges along the way of the terminal design.The limited budget, the short design period and the limited available area to fit all the required facilities and services, all ahev created the real challenge of this project.


Two wings for entry lobies, luggage screening zone and emigration counters are located at both ends of the terminal. The central portion is reserved for the luggage store and the seating area. Due to The location of the terminal close to the old centre of Dubai with its heritage culture, the architecture came to reflect this context in modern interpretation to the Emarati traditional architecture.
