Entry DescriptionModern Working offers premium office spaces at the iconic Opus by Zaha Hadid, in the heart of Dubai. Its bespoke interiors called for customized lighting solutions to create an efficient, elegant and state-of-the-art workplace.
The main challenge was to design a luxurious yet comfortable environment through lighting, matching the stunning building’s architecture and the beautiful interior design. The curved ceiling next to the facade represented another obstacle, since it’s a building’s requirement that it must remain untouched.
The curved joinery work along the facade that embraces the common areas received a linear lighting system, creating a nice and cozy effect on the floor. The entrance and hallways were marked by 2.5 cm wide lines that incorporate the AC exhaustion grills as well as the lighting system. The auditorium and open offices received wider fixtures of light in a customized system composed by linear diffuse light, linear downlights and directional spots. For the enclosed offices our objective was to create a productive and welcoming atmosphere. The main meeting room, which is located right at the entrance of the office, was designed to enchant members and their clients at the first glance in a sophisticated and comfortable environment.
