About the project

Global interior architecture firm Wilson Associates officially reopened their Dubai office, making the move to the city’s creative hub, the Dubai Design District (d3). The design of Wilson Associates Office, Dubai was led by the designer itself while at the same time incorporating inputs and assistance from many market specialists including product manufacturers and workplace designers.

The concept of the place reflects Wilson Associates’ innovative approach to design while providing an inspiring place for designers, suppliers, clients and guests to work, collaborate and innovate. The look and feel of the workspace captures the design team’s creative spirit featuring quirky design elements that include a neon “On/Off” sign at the entryway, a crystal chandelier composed of skulls and bones, gold-painted ceilings and an over-scaled sofa. These elements are balanced by a reserved colour palette and carefully selected finishes, fixtures, and materials.

Another key design highlight includes geometric flooring that seamlessly transitions into the carpet in the studio area. The carpet mimics the water movement of the river Thames, providing a stark juxtaposition against the angular flooring that reflects the urban and natural influences of the designer’s work.

To offer a welcoming work environment, an open floor plan was applied throughout – one that incorporates a number of break out areas – from small, individual-style standing desks to an eight-person table for the group and individual brainstorming sessions at work. A large communal pantry offers tables and cooking areas for socializing and casual productivity. In the large meeting room, two tables replace the traditional large conference table, allowing for multiple meetings to take place simultaneously, and providing the office with a more casual, café-like feel.

This Dubai office will be home to around 30 talented designers. The client was drawn to the vibrant design community located in d3. and looked forward to being part of the burgeoning design scene in Dubai. According to Wilson Associates, D3 offers the ideal environment to foster the team’s creativity, encourage collaboration and drive design innovation.
