Deira is a historically significant district within the city of Dubai, United Arab Emirates bordered by the Persian Gulf, Sharjah and Al Awir. Situated north of the Dubai Creek and south of the Sharjah border, Deira offers residents an interesting blend of heritage and modernity showcased together. Some of the UAE's historic attractions are located here.
Our client, a Finances & Gold trading company acquired a double floor penthouse, in an old residential building located in the old Deira area.
Main obstacle was to convert a home to an office space. Lots of walls needed to be demolished in the GF to keep the area open, accessible and naturally lit.
The design theme was to mix modern lighting designs with modern architectural formations with a touch of classical accents.
All materials and finishes used were aimed to reflect the main uses of the office: money exchange and gold trading.
