London-based architecture firm Design International opened its office in Dubai at the Dubai Design District (d3) last week. The office, which is the latest addition to its global network, located at Building 4 of d3 was inaugurated in the presence of dignitaries and d3’s trendy community.
“We are delighted to open our new office in Dubai. This is testament to our long-standing connection with the region and reflects our admiration for the way the city of Dubai has chosen to embrace the architecture and design industries. We look forward to working in the Dubai Design District with its stimulating vibe that reflects innovation in a space that educates, entertains and supports creativity,” says Design International CEO, Davide Padoa.
Design International’s philosophy is rooted in the belief that every design has its own individual story created with the aim to trigger a unique experience for guests in different environments – be it retail, hospitality, commercial, residential or recreational leisure projects.
Recent examples of Design International’s work in the region include the Lulu Group’s Mall in Silicon Oasis, which creates a sustainable, dynamic sanctuary where people can meet and share a wealth of different experiences. Il Centro in Arese, Italy is another example that skilfully integrates the use of interior and external space through its city street concept. Both centres embody the firm’s philosophy of shaping stories to create transformative experiences.
