H+A consulting architect for Downtown Design

August 2018

Dubai-based H+A has been appointed the consulting architects for the upcoming Downtown Design 2018, the region’s leading contemporary design fair that will take place at the d3 Waterfront within Dubai Design District from November 13 to 16.

The fair will focus on the theme ‘Livable Cities’ and emphasise on the luxurious yet functional approach to design. Furthermore, the design theme embodies the story of Dubai, its achievements and its aspiration to be the world’s best city.

The upcoming edition is set to significantly enhance the visitor experience, interactive features and content, providing a unique environment for new brands launching products and for trade and consumer buyers to discover the best design products from around the world.

As part of the new experience this year, the fair will activate the outdoor waterfront terrace, where visitors can experience design at first hand with the backdrop of Dubai Creek and the city’s skyline. New features will include creative pop-up cafes, a multi-functional indoor recreational garden space with enhanced outdoor features and an engaging and interactive materials library within a pavilion situated in the heart of the fair.

Located within Downtown Editions, the inaugural showcase of bespoke and limited-edition design, ‘The Collective’ will highlight a selection of UAE-based designers producing work with commercial potential, each presenting an original piece that is functional and scalable, in a gallery display setting.

Managing director Stas Louca and design director David Lessard bring together a combined 40 years of specialised experience to provide architecture, interiors and landscape design services to the growing healthcare and hospitality projects in the region.

The collaboration with H+A will not only amplify the aesthetic appeal of Downtown Design, but also further develop the fair as an environment for brands, designers and architects to interact and explore commercial opportunity.
