London-based architectural firm Design International has opened its first office in the Middle East at the Dubai Design District (d3).
Located in Building 4 of d3, the office was inaugurated in the presence of dignitaries and industry leaders attending the 2018 edition of the Italian Design Day on Tuesday.
Davide Padoa, CEO at Design International, said: “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.”
A spokesperson for the firm said the company is expecting to hire local and regional talent to accommodate its expansion.
Design International has already worked on projects in the region, recently creating a sustainable design for the Lulu Group’s Mall in Silicon Oasis Dubai.
