Thinking big: redesigning spaces in Dubai

Dubai is a city of superlatives. Home to both the world’s tallest building and largest shopping centre, this is an Emirate that is constantly striving for more. Carrying out interior design projects in the “City of Gold” is a delightful experience, so we went behind closed doors to delve into the stylish approach taken by one of its residents...

Mark's dream home

Clean and minimal detailing complement the predominantly white and cream color scheme with elegant finesse. Marble surfaces help Mark to keep cool inside, while the sun beats down outside. Traditional Arabic motifs have been reinvigorated with a modern flair.

“I was looking for a cool, modern space that incorporated a few traditional and local motifs.”


Financial operator

Floor-to-ceiling windows, minimalist furnishings and high ceilings combine to give Mark’s apartment a feeling of grandeur and expansiveness that artfully complements Dubai’s aesthetic. The chosen sink, worktop and oven work well with the understated, pared back design of the overall space. Marble finishes lend a premium look and feel - perfect in a city where style and status are paramount.

A vision of luxury and endless possibilities.

In a city like Dubai, bold expression is par for the course. It’s a place where people dress to impress and love to entertain guests in style. Creating a home that distils Dubai’s spirit into a welcoming space is tricky to master but hugely rewarding.


Meet Mark

Mark is a 40-year-old Dutch expat who lives happily in Dubai. Having completed his professional training at the London School of Economics, he is now a financial operator and has shares in a real estate company. He has also been a member of the Dubai Offshore Sailing Club for several years. Mark's goal when redesigning his home was to create a space that fused the modern with the traditional. He was also keen to recreate the sense of freedom he feels whilst sailing on the open water. For Mark, being able to entertain guests in style is just as important as having a calm and comfortable place to relax.
