A Tour of LinkedIn’s New Dubai Office
Technology company LinkedIn recently hired architecture firm SAY Studio to design their new office in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
“For the refresh of LinkedIn’s MENA headquarters at Business Central Towers in Dubai, SAY Studio drew inspiration from the diverse landscape and history of the city. Through color, texture, pattern and art, SAY designed each floor to connect people to one another and with Dubai. It was a priority for the design team to create a community of new experiences that brings employees closer together with their teams, encourages them to explore the office, and features creative design elements that reflect the city of Dubai.
Managing Director of SAY Studio, Matthew Sexton, says, “Future-focused clients have embraced hybrid working, but LinkedIn pushes the envelope through their dynamic work environment. Their workplace provides employees with flexibility to work however they need to with a blend of spaces.
LinkedIn provides opportunities for people to create new contacts and partnerships to make them more productive and successful. The aim in designing their refreshed regional headquarters is to embody these concepts in physical spaces that represent LinkedIn’s mission. Their dynamic work environment gathers teams in neighborhoods and provides a variety of workpoints to allow staff to choose how they work. The graphics, furniture and finishes ground the spaces in the history of the city of Dubai.”
