The City Makers Initiative is centered around improvement to public services. Through a dedicated work and collaboration space, various challenges to improve such services within an extremely short period of time would be undertaken.
The space needed to reflect not only the area that it is located in – Al Serkal Avenue, but also to the UAE’s heritage and values. At the same time it had to appeal to all kinds of visitors, and include a café and juice bar area.
Being an industrial unit, the space is a warehouse with a mezzanine, providing the perfect environment for ‘supersized’ wow factor features. These include the adaptable auditorium with modern fragmented hanging tube lights and huge graffiti poems from His Highness, an integrated reception area, cool café and a 6m high digital video wall.
