Our Team

DZ Design team bring more than 50 years of combined experience of global hospitality design firms and retail groups to the table


Dina Murali, a known figure among Interior Designers in Dubai, leads our team at DZ Design with expertise and creativity. She’s not just an Interior Design Director; she’s an industry expert known for her remarkable work. Always approachable and available, Dina consistently adds that extra touch to our projects, enhancing them beyond the client’s imagination.

Born in India and having spent most of her life in the UAE, Dina holds a degree from the prestigious BLDEA School of Architecture in India. She kickstarted her career at RC Architecture, learning from design luminaries George John and Vijay Dsouza.

With her tenure at renowned firms like DWP and other major hospitality design companies, Dina has garnered invaluable experience in shaping authentic and captivating design narratives that prioritize people’s experiences. Her portfolio boasts collaborations with prestigious brands like Ramada, Crown Plaza, Radisson, Intercontinental, Hilton, and Marriott.

Dina’s recent accomplishments include interior design projects for iconic venues like Oasis Mall in Dubai, Radisson, Citymax, Pullman, Movenpick, Hilton hotels, and an especially notable one – the transformative refurbishment of Emirates Park Zoo and Resort. This project, completed in two phases, resulted in an immediate 30% increase in occupancy rates.

Clients consistently praise Dina for her down-to-earth approach and her unique ability to infuse added value into their visions. Her profound comprehension of the Middle East’s complex business landscape makes her a trusted and reliable design expert, particularly in the domains of hospitality and luxury residential interiors.


Zain Belgami, a leader among Interior Designers in Dubai, spearheads our business development efforts, backed by over 18 years of experience in design and project management across the Middle East and India. Born in Chennai and raised in a large family, Zain’s professional journey took him from a design studio in Bangalore to a decade-long tenure with the Landmark Group in Dubai. There, he contributed significantly to major projects, including the Landmark Tower and the Oasis Shopping Mall.

The vision of venturing independently was sown by Dina, and the couple chose Dubai Design District as their launchpad to immerse themselves in a thriving design community.

As a company director, Zain takes charge of overseeing and expanding our firm’s operations across the region. His portfolio spans diverse sectors, encompassing mixed-use, commercial, retail, leisure, F&B, residential, and healthcare. In every project, Zain applies the same meticulous care, unwavering attention to detail, and a people-centric approach.

The cornerstone of our company’s success lies in the trust of repeat clients, a dedicated team characterized by professionalism, a knack for attentive listening and understanding business partners, and a firm commitment to delivering value through practical solutions and technical expertise.

Zain excels in translating creative teams’ ideas and visions into actionable solutions, ensuring that projects adhere to the three pillars of successful design: cost and budget adherence, on-time delivery, and impeccable quality.

His top projects include the KGA Group Office in JLT, Dubai, the Bloomsbury Café in Bangalore, Emirates Parks and Zoo Resort, the Bank Of Baroda Office, and the Radisson Blu Hotel in Ajman.


With more than 14 years of experience in design and project management across the Middle East and India, Zain, born in Chennai as one of eight siblings and now a father of two himself, is at the helm of business development for DZ Design.

Following work at a studio in Bangalore, he moved to the Landmark Group in Dubai, where he spent 10 years and worked on large scale projects including the Landmark Tower and the Oasis Shopping Mall.

Dina first planted the idea of branching out on their own and the couple chose D3 as they wanted to be at the heart of a creative design community.

As a director of the company, Zain holds the demanding role of taking on responsibility for the overall operation and expansion of the firm across the region.

Among his numerous projects are mixed-use, commercial, retail, leisure, F&B, residential and healthcare, all of which he approaches with the same care, attention to detail and with a people-first philosophy.

A key to the company’s success has been repeat clients who trust the practice, a committed team with professionalism at its core, the ability to listen and understand business partners, and an emphasis on showing value in reaching solutions and applying technical and servicing expertise.

These strategies and approaches enable Zain to provide a detailed translation of the ideas and visions of creative teams into buildable solutions, while also ensuring the complete process meets the three most important aspects in any successful design – cost and budget, time and deadlines, and overall quality.

His top projects include the KGA Group Office, JLT, Dubai, the Bloomsbury Café in Bangalore, Emirates Parks & Zoo Resort, the Bank Of Baroda Office and the Radisson Blu Hotel, Ajman.
