DZ Design was commissioned by Fortes Education to redesign the administration area of Regent International School centrally located in Emaar’s Greens in the Emirates Living community. The brief was to turn the administration area into an exciting collaborative and open space that reflects the ethos of bold innovation in STEAM and Positive Education that Regent is famous for.
How did we help?
The new design forms a fresh and individual space that reflects Regent’s culture and values and gives their staff, and students a strong sense of belonging. During the planning stage, the board of directors along with the staff were greatly involved in the decision-making process by expressing their needs and favoured use of the space as well as their preferences in furniture, material, and colour choices.
As the refit of the entrance hall took place during the school holidays, the design concept was tailored to a solution, which could be implemented during the construction time. All enhancements are achieved in a tight budget of slightly over AED1 million and furniture was to be entirely locally sourced.
The newly-fitted entrance hall is a great example of how an amenity and circulation area can be transformed into an inspiring and empowering space for students to study and relax.
