ATÖLYE Dubai is our second location after Istanbul – a physical hub for a purpose-driven studio and regional creative community in the Middle East.
The Studio works with partners and organizations to design and implement strategic solutions to complex challenges using a transdisciplinary approach and fluid team structure.
Our curated community brings together some of the most talented independent freelancers, teams and creative organizations in the region.
Being a member of the ATÖLYE Dubai community means
having a strong passion for purpose-driven work,
a desire to connect deeply with fellow changemakers,
and a curiosity to continue learning and growing.
Our Dubai Studio works closely with impact-driven clients and institutions to create long-lasting impact in the UAE and beyond.
Our work, ranging from architectural and spatial design to organizational
and service design, employs a community-powered approach
to innovation rooted in human-centered design and systems thinking.
The Dubai Future Accelerators space hosts startups in cooperation with the government and private sector entities. With the right interventions, and by utilizing the strengths of the existing design, we set out to design an exploration and production space that is never underutilized. Out of the 80 hours of field research, a scenario-based layout system that enables different modes of interactions emerged.
In 2019, ATÖLYE joined kyu Collective members IDEO and Palmwood to design a transformative learning journey for the government of the UAE with the project “Design Gov.” The project addressed the nation’s goal of transforming towards a human-centered approach by empowering future leaders, aiming to embed creative mindsets and skills into the ways government officials think and work—enabling them to imagine and co-create meaningful solutions together with the people they serve.
