Tiara Penthouse, Dubai

Zen Interiors was commissioned by a Dutch businessman to create the interiors for his four bedroom apartment bought as a base for when working in Dubai. He owns numerous properties around the globe and likes to create a distinct flavour of the geographical location of each one. Being in the UAE, he wanted an Arabic-inspired design that captured the look and feel of ‘modern-Arabia’. The chosen style was inspired by the Arabesque use of pattern repetition and strong architectural statements such as columns and architraves. However, lines are sleeker and colours are lighter to reflect a more contemporary Arabian ambience.
