Design Practice: dwp | design worldwide partnership
Client: The Executive Council of Dubai
This project creates a tranquil and innovative office space that mirrors the client's business ethos while fostering interaction among team members and guests. Collaboration areas, concealed within lush greenery, invite users to engage in intellectual exchanges. Central to the design is the warm and inviting staff café, with an elegant simplicity that mirrors the natural landscape. Thoughtful integration of pockets of greenery create an atmosphere of tranquillity and inspiration.
The timelessly elegant interiors feature a wealth of natural materials, including timber, while a light colour palette promotes relaxation and comfort.
Key aspects of the design are its commitment to sustainability and inclusivity. The building accommodates individuals with disabilities through strategically placed diverse floor finishes and special wall treatments. The design overcomes the challenge of acoustics in a highly transparent space, enhancing the acoustic performance of each closed office.
