We're appreciating going outdoors more than even and these designers certainly know how to make the most of outdoor spaces.

Masdar City Central Park by AECOM

The Central Park at Masdar is an iconic destination that showcases innovative public realm practices, whilst exhibiting a suitable response to local context and culture. The park has been designed to reinforce Masdar City’s public realm principles that encompass the themes; liveable community, environment, natural systems, outdoor comfort, water conservation and urban systems.

The scope of work entailed a full design concept which was guided by the highest standards in sustainability and the best practices of landscape design.

St. Trop, Waldorf Astoria Dubai International Financial Centre, by LW Design

In the brief, the client proposed that LW Design create an energetic poolside bar that’s inspired by St Tropez trends and the area’s aesthetic of enjoyment for locals and visitors alike. LW’ lead designers on this project; Pooja Shah-Mulani and Jenni Davies were inspired by the French Cote d’Azur’s unique vibe and exclusive luxury yacht ambience. The concept behind the space was to develop a venue that was fun with contemporary elements.

You'll need to come indoors to meet the winner, at the 14th annual Commercial Interior Design Awards 2020, which take place on November 25, in the JW Marriott Marquis Dubai.
