The Dubai Mall, in the Downtown area of the city, is thought to be the largest retail mall in the world by total area.

Its second phase of development was completed in 2017, and we worked on a new fit-out project for developer Emaar, located in the extension ‘Fashion Avenue’. Emaar brought new luxury brands to Dubai for its high-end beauty destination – a perfumery. WME delivered the building services for the project, which occupies a series of open and private spaces, with varied tenancy requirements.

We worked closely with Emaar and Kinnersley Kent Design to streamline the services to each tenancy and ensure that the building services were closely and invisibly integrated with the interior finishes. The haptic qualities of the spaces were extremely important- with subdued sound.
