In need of a new Dubai HQ, The Government of Dubai Media Office engaged Summertown to fit out their unique new media workplace.
The Government of Dubai Media Office (GDMO) is responsible for implementing strategic communication plans for the Government of Dubai, as well as disseminating government-related news in cooperation with local government agencies. Our Middle East Partners, Summertown Interiors, were delighted to have the opportunity to deliver such a unique fit-out for the new 4,200sqm GDMO headquarters that also encompassed the Dubai Press and Members Club.
Inspired by the design concept ‘Castle in the Sand’, the office reflects GDMO’s vision to create a space that ‘feels like home’, combining a blend of nostalgia and modernity. Designed by Dubai firm Bluehaus Group, the HQ incorporates the latest media equipment and technology including a Master Control Room (MCR), Central Apparatus Room (CAR), and several recording, editing and voiceover booths with acoustic treatments for sound proofing and absorption.
