Interior design and fit-out firm KPS has recently completed the Dubai office of food delivery business Talabat, optimising material choices to keep costs down.
Talabat is said to be one of the largest food ordering platforms in the region, with a presence in Bahrain, Jordan, Kuwait, Oman, Saudi Arabia, and the UAE. It has moved into a new space in Business Bay, Dubai, covering more than 700m² that KPS has designed.
The design brief was simple: create a “modern, funky, and agile environment” for the business that still maintains a clean aesthetic design helping to encourage collaboration and creativity, KPS said.
Much of Talabat’s office is open plan. Closed office rooms are largely on the perimeter of the building, helping these spaces maximise natural light, as well as offering people a striking view of the Dubai skyline.
Talabat’s trademark orange and white colour scheme is reflected throughout the space, with artwork, furniture, and the kitchen area all incorporating the company’s vivid palette.
Tiered wooden seating in the communal area will allow the company to conduct its own town hall-style meetings with staff as well.
KPS told Commercial Interior Design that it was an exciting challenge to create an agile and open office environment that delivered value for money for Talabat.
“One of the challenges faced was to be able to deliver a project with all of the above requirements and maintain value for money, this was achieved by cleverly optimizing the use of materials in the adequate spaces,” the company said.
