The vision behind the re-design was to further enhance DFM’s position as a powerful capital market hub which embraces international best practices to meet the evolving needs of its investors both locally and internationally.

Navani and his team at DHM studio conceptualised the dramatic re-design of this iconic location, whose ongoing efforts and strategic initiatives have further reinforced Dubai as a centre of excellence. DHM executed the major re-design project from start to finish across a four-year timeline, commencing in April 2013 with the official completion and handover date in April 2017.
