At the centre of the world’s first Ferrari theme park, located on Yas Island, Abu Dhabi, is the iconic, Ferrari red roof of the world’s largest indoor park, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, designed by Benoy Architects, Abu Dhabi. Its shape is directly inspired by the classic double curve of the Ferrari body shell, ultimately resulting in an architecture that presents the language, values and passion of the Ferrari brand itself.

Reynaers designed nearly thirty new profiles, twelve new gaskets, and countless fittings for the spectacular Ferrari World theme park in Abu Dhabi. The façade was made from a bespoke version of CW 86-EF. A bespoke solution on a 3D steel support system was made for the funnel. The walkway has a bespoke sunscreen solution, also developed by Reynaers.

These kinds of tailor-made solutions are uncommon, because very often it is possible to make relatively small adjustments to one of the existing Reynaers systems, which are flexible and versatile in a variety of situations.

PROJECT SOLUTION
System: CW 86-EF

Curtain wall:
- Two major parts, funnel and shield
- Additional walk way
Loading...

- The funnel, with a special shape, was installed via a 3D space frame
- The shield's curtain wall was uniquely anchored to the outside steel
- Different colours for outside and inside parts
- The steel walk way has a large aluminum ball nose accepting light fixtures
- The roof is molded after Yas Island's logo.

Funnel:
- Curtain walls were installed via a 3D space frame to allow movement prompting proper dilatation adjustments
- The mullion's shape was fixed (visual architectural aspect) but the final size was determined through inertia calculations
- Due to the predetermined shape, there was a need to solve issues of movement, connections with transoms coming under different angles, anchoring and obviously AWW performance
- Strong fixation of heavy elements to the frames
- Panels are mostly trapezoidal and 3D shapes
- Executed AWW tests to the highest European standards
- The result is designing a new insulated system

Starting from down upwards, the funnel grows wider. It will need 30 panels to complete its lowest circle multiplying into 60 and 120 to complete its middle and upper circles. This challenge is solved by the insertion of triangular shapes.

The strength of the Reynaers façade systems lies in the fact that there is a lot of flexibility to make non-standard connections, meaning that one of the existing systems can often be adapted. If this doesn't work, it's possible to choose a custom-made solution. Reynaers designed nearly thirty new profiles, twelve new gaskets, and countless fittings for the spectacular Ferrari World theme park in Abu Dhabi. The façade was made from a bespoke version of CW 86-EF. A bespoke solution on a 3D steel support system was made for the funnel.
