    In this, the first part of a significant cultural zone masterplan for Dubai, a community of diverse creative industries is connected by seamless paving expressing a minimal and bold aesthetic punctuated by street art and spill-out zones.

    A network of outdoor spaces connect the buildings, creating a flexible canvas for outdoor events, installations, concerts and exhibitions, as well as for everyday informal activities.


    In d3’s wide open landscape of linear paving with dark accents, bespoke outdoor furniture and clever integration of MEP outlets into usable gathering spaces, the space has become a vibrant and inspirational working/socialising hub for the city’s artists, designers and creatives.
