Dubai Trade Center District, Dubai, UAE

City: Dubai
Architect: Michael Hopkins Architects

The Dubai Trade Center District (DTCD) development is part of Dubai World Trade Center and consists of 6 office building with retail & leisure spaces on the ground floor level, two hotels (IBIS & Radisson) and the surrounding landscaping area which includes outdoor cafes and pedestrian zones. The lighting strategy for this project was based on a sustainable lighting design. The lighting design employs high efficiency – low consumption light sources like LEDs and metal halide and takes care to avoid light pollution and glare. Pedestrian zones are mainly lit indirectly from the tree lighting in order to create a more relaxed atmosphere while special water features and benched are discreetly lit by integrated light fittings.
