Majid Al Futtaim Communities, a part of UAE-based Majid Al Futtaim Properties, has announced that its key development, The Pavilion at Tilal Al Ghaf Sales & Experience Centre, has won the Regional Award in Asia category at this year's BREEAM Awards held in London. 
Located on the banks of the Lagoon Al Ghaf, The Pavilion's floor-to-ceiling glass façade allows for exceptional views across the crystal waters of the premium resort-style community's stunning recreational lagoon.
Featuring a floating curved roof and with ample use of organic materials, the building is not only aesthetically pleasing but harnesses biophilic design principles to connect seamlessly with the surrounding landscape. 
Currently utilised as a sales and experience centre, The Pavilion will become a vibrant hub where residents and guests can gather to enjoy a year-round calendar of inspiring arts, cultural and social events.

Described by the independent judging panel as being "emblematic of successfully striking the right balance between cutting-edge aesthetic design and an unerring commitment to environmental standards", the Pavilion at Tilal Al Ghaf – Sales and Experience Centre stands as a benchmark for sustainable design for the UAE and beyond.
