Coffee Zone DIFC

    This transitional space and stairway access point in Dubai’s DIFC provides shaded and cooling respite from the heat for people passing through, whilst also creating a verdant pocket park for lunchtime gathering and cafe spill-out.

    As temperatures increase, a key way to maintain comfort for walkable urban environments is through the planting of trees and shrubs.
