Client often spend time waiting in this space; the brief was to give it a welcoming, hospitality look and feel.
PDI were asked to refresh the existing property transfer office within the Al Manara Dubai Municipality building. The Client asked for a space that would offer a VIP hospitality experience for visitors through a contemporary and light design, yet echo some traditional arabesque details.
We opened up the existing space into the Atrium and positioned a sculptural reception desk in the heart of the space encouraging visitor interaction. The design palette is muted with coffees and taupes. An arabesque diamond pattern is featured on the wallpaper, manifestation and custom carved carpets - each application interpreted into a different contemporary pattern.
