IO Designed Most Innovative Corporate Headquarters in Dubai Internet City


A global ICT service provider recently announced its partnership with MENA’s largest ICT hub, Dubai Internet City (DIC) – a member of TECOM Group, to establish its national headquarters in the UAE.  This long term investment will help to drive the country’s vision to make Dubai the smartest city in the world.

Nick Cordingley, Design Partner at lO added, "One of the key drivers for the project is its integration into the existing urban fabric with its distinctive low rise neighbourhood. At the heart of the scheme, the design team introduced a 'stepping gardens' concept by bringing the landscape up from the arrival level to the office environment, forming large private and semi-private terraces at the roof of the headquarters."
