The cultural centre of the city of Dubai.

The true origin of Dubai is undergoing a cultural makeover with the introduction of the Shindagha Museum. Our team developed the strategy and concept design of this complex Heritage District. Over 90 buildings in a 350,000 sqm site.

A masterplan strategy was developed that tackled different conditions and constrains of a maze-like plan.

Zoning, naming, and placemaking strategies were set along with correction plans for the Sikkas.

A wayfinding and signage concept was developed to create clustered areas by having panels for different functions, colours for different themed zones, and ordering them by proximity.
