The Gateway set to transform the Sports City skyline

Floor to ceiling glass to shine modernity in to 44 floors of office space.

Set to be the tallest buildings in Dubai Sports City, the initial interior design concepts of the two iconic towers namely, 'The Gateway', were recently unveiled.

Designed by Arif & Bintoak consulting architects and engineers, famous for high-end projects such as the Raffles Hotel at Wafi City, The Gateway is set to combine stylish architectural design both inside and out.

"We've used a very modern, and contemporary design philosophy, in terms of office spaces," said Walaa Omran, marketing manager for real estate, Dubai Sports City.

"The pillars will be situated towards the end of the rooms so they can be easily partitioned and furnished giving the tenants the flexibility to do as they wish with there space. Floor to ceiling glass will also be incorporated, which is reflective and allows light to come in, as well as isolating the heat. This will save on power and always give the office a bright atmosphere - this use of glass will compliment the exterior as well as the interior."

With an area space of 1.2 million ft2 making up 44 floors of office space, a spa, gym and a ‘Skyline' restaurant at the top, the black and white shades of the exterior are the basis of the interior design concepts running throughout the entire building.

"Black and silver will run through our lobbies and hallways. As you know this is an office tower so we will not finish the offices internally - it is up to the users to do whatever it is they want to do with them. But, the corridors, lifts, entrances and such places, will incorporate a lot of steal and marble - modern, contemporary, high-end, sheikh designs - this is what we want to achieve," said Omran.

Official handover of The Gateway is expected towards the end of 2010.
