Biophilic design elements and plants feature throughout the space including an indoor ‘Contemplation Garden’ and outdoor terrace garden. Several sustainable systems were implemented by Summertown including a light control system with occupancy sensors that saves unnecessary electricity consumption. LED light fittings were installed which are 80% more efficient than traditional lighting such as fluorescent and incandescent light – and CO2 sensors interfaced with BMS systems.

The high-spec fit-out was delivered within 11 months, ready for the official opening in January 2020 for the 20th Anniversary of the Dubai Press and Members Club, attended by Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.
