Lulie Fisher, design director and founder of eponymous practice Lulie Fisher Design Studio, established the boutique firm in 2016. Three years later, she has completed 10 projects in the Middle East, including the award-winning Studio Republik fitness centre on Sheikh Zayed Road and the acclaimed Vida Hotel, Emirates Hills, for Emaar.
Her team has increased to 10 people in the last 12 months and Fisher expects revenue to rise by close to a quarter between 2018 and 2019. Under her leadership, the dynamic design firm is now targeting larger commercial projects with blue-chip developers and is looking seriously at expansion into Europe.
Hospitality, cultural and residential projects will remain at the core of Lulie Fisher Design Studio’s repertoire moving forwards. And this can be seen in its mix of upcoming projects.
These include Manzil Residences, developments for Meraas in City Walk and Emirates Towers District, Emaar’s Mina Rashid waterfront megaproject and a villa for Ellington Properties. The studio is also working on a luxury penthouse in Mumbai and a confidential branded hotel in Dubai.
Lulie Fisher won Highly Commended Interior Designer of the Year at the Commercial Interior Design Awards 2019 — and narrowly missed out on winning the top prize.
Peers have described her as one of the region’s most influential designers in Dubai.
