DESIGNyoung is a Dubai based company, offering international commercial interior design expertise that covers a range of projects, concentrating on the Hospitality, Leisure, Corporate Office and Commercial Residential Design sectors.
DESIGNyoungs experience in these design sectors encompasses a client / project list of well established companies and household names from around the world, which goes back over 35 years as a result of the international working experience of Design Principal Mark Young.
We believe it is important that the Design Principal and key staff have been working in Dubai and the Gulf region since 1991, enabling our design solutions to be tailored to suit local traditions and tastes where appropriate.
DESIGNyoung is not a huge impersonal design factory, our tight knit design team concentrates on bespoke design solutions with an attention to detail and brings a high level of personal commitment to every project.
Being an independent design consultancy means that we have no ties or connections with contractors or suppliers, resulting in a freedom to design and specify products and materials that are correct for the particular project and budget.
We invite you to join our growing list of clients, and we welcome the opportunity of becoming part of your team to use our design skills for your commercial success.
At DESIGNyoung we see design as a tool to develop the business success of our clients.
Our Design output is not the indulgence of our highly creative design team. Every client is regarded as an entity with specific desire, strengths and opportunities. The end design is achieved by resolving the particular challenges that each individual client and project may present.
As every business is different, every design solution is unique.
We are a pragmatic design team who look to attain maximum value and commercial success for our client through our creative solutions. Our approach is based on our following convictions:
We pride ourselves in being successful at designing Profitable People Places.
Our corporate design strategy also aims to create aesthetical and functional design without neglecting the protection of the environment.
At DESIGNyoung, we take into consideration our clients growing needs to create an environmentally sound design. We address and incorporate green standards by sourcing sustainable materials as per the environmental rating systems/schemes such as LEED, BREEAM, Green Star and Estidama (upcoming GCC standards).
We are aware of the dichotomy between the various accreditation systems hence our approach would reflect the need to understand the appropriate location and local regulations depending on the project.
To meet these high levels of sustainable requirements, we consider the following design solutions:
Benefits to our clients:
Our objective is to inspire our clients with quality and eco-friendly materials & finishes to help transform and create a sustainable environment.
Future sustainability is synonymous with continuous improvement and in order to be well prepared to meet the requirements of our clients, we are constantly working with our suppliers to ensure the use of innovative ecologically sound products.
