The International law firms’ intent was to open a branch in the UAE to expand their services in the Middle East Region. The brief was to create the new office by following the branding guildelines of Stephenson Harwood while incorporating design elements that reflect the cultural context. The space is divided into client facing area and working area. The reception is bright and modern, articulating the clean-cut, formal look and feel. Main design elements include lacquered white walls, black barstocks running throughout the space and dotted world map that indicates the worldwide presence of the law firm. The stone flooring emphasises the desert colours and waves, blending with the carpet of the working area.
