design et al are delighted to announce the successful shortlist for Final Fix in The International Design & Architecture Awards 2015. This private villa is located in Dubai and is to be used as a rest house during weekends.
The client asked for a simple, comfortable, open space design. The villa was built some 30 years ago and the designers were instructed on the renovation of the interior space, taking into consideration the available space and MEP services that should not be changed.
The challenge was to respect the existing elements and to work around creating an open space for living and dining, and merge some spaces to create a pleasing entrance lobby. The client’s requirements were met to ensure a creative interior space was provided without changing the villa structure of the MEP services.
The designers were able to prepare the interior design following a full survey to the existing building and all services, and were in turn able meeting the budget and the timescale provided by the client. This was a fast track project.
