ICON undertook the refurbishment of the existing landscape surrounding the nine main buildings in DIC (Dubai Internet City) Phase 1, which includes a large, landscaped lake. An outer ring of car parking areas is situated between the plot’s boundary and the nine buildings. Our primary objective was to enhance the outdoor space and facilities of DIC business park in a sustainable and viable manner, while prioritizing the needs and well-being of employees, visitors, and other users.

Through our design approach, we aimed to provide solutions for the existing landscape areas, related facilities, and connectivity, taking into account the aesthetic value, functionality, and impact on the daily life of DIC’s employees, visitors, and other users. Our implementation efforts have transformed the outdoor space into a more vibrant, people-friendly, and functional environment, greatly enhancing the overall experience of DIC Phase 1 and enriching the daily lives of those who interact with the business park.
