THE ARCHITECTURE STUDIO WON THE AWARD IN THE PRESTIGIOUS CATEGORY ‘ DESIGNER OF THE YEAR’
After numerous awards for several projects over the past few years, Design International, studio of architecture, consultation and design, has been awarded in the category “Designer of the year” at the prestigious RLI (Retail&Leisure International) Awards 2017 with the project “Avenues Mall, Silicon Oasis” (in the picture).
The project “Avenues Mall, Silicon Oasis”, is the new flagship among the shopping centers of LuLu Group International, in Dubai. The Avenues Mall will become the new gateway to the 7.2-square kilometer “Dubai Silicon Oasis”, the smart city overlooking the Emirates Road and Al Ain Road: an area that is facing rapid growth in Dubai, with world class facilities that will host 700 high tech companies, institutions, hotels, business park and large residential communities.
The revolutionary design of the Avenues Mall, Silicon Oasis consists of five giant pebble-shaped elements. Inspired by the ancient Arabian movements across the desert, Design International has created at the same time an architectural, striking structure and a majestic oasis of calm and tranquility, in opposition to the frantic pace of modern suburbs of Dubai. Inside, the Mall makes the nature stands out, with five squares that recall the five elements of an oasis: the cave, the canyon, the forest, the lagoon and the mirage.
