FLAIR NO.5 WINS AT THE CID AWARDS

Best Outdoor Design of the Year was our very own Flair No. 5, an outdoor lounge and bar in the Ritz Carlton, Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC).

Accepting the award, Tapiwa Chasi, together with his colleague, Jacqueline Craft, said: “We managed to create a tropical space, an oasis in the middle of the concrete jungle that is DIFC. That alone has resulted in an amazing ambience. We used seating on different levels and cabanas, which is not easy to find in Dubai.”

The judges described the winning project as a tropical paradise, which presents a nature-inspired relaxing hangout in an urban environment. They also commented that the use of graphic elements and natural materials further elevated the space.
