American International Group, Inc. (AIG), one of the leading global insurance organizations with over 100 years of experience, were relocating from their existing offices in Dubai International Finance Centre (DIFC) to a new 1,300sqm premises in Building 8, Gate Village, DIFC.
The brief was to design and build a new Middle East office, that incorporated AIG’s corporate branding and with a benchmark from AIGʼs Hamburg and Milan offices, whilst adhering to their subtle brand colour palette. Summertown entrusted SAY Studio to design the new workspace, and worked in close partnership with Compass project management team to deliver the new head office for AIG.
The result is a crisp, modern, functional workspace that incorporates a large boardroom that can accommodate 24+ people, open workstations, several meeting rooms, collaboration areas, and reception. Fabric covered acoustic wall panels provide welcoming insulated meeting rooms for those important 1:1 meetings and teleconferences, and quiet focus time. Furthermore, the new office has an inviting pantry area with a variety seating options that is drenched in natural light from the large adjoining outdoor terrace.
