New D3 base for RMJM

RMJM is the latest architect company to uproot and establish itself in Dubai Design District (D3).

The company is moving from its previous home close to Dubai World Trade Centre to take advantage of the growing creative quarter which has also lured interior designers, artists and musicians.

Neil Van der Veen (pictured) of the company said: “In the long term it will be extremely beneficial to us to be part of this business community. We already work with some of the people who have moved out there.

“It is not just architects we are looking to reach we want to gather contacts across the creative industries.”

RMJM runs much of its business from its Dubai office and principal John Clemow said the move was an opportunity to rejuvenate the company.

“We can plan our own offices,” he said. “An architect firm’s office is like a showroom and is an opportunity to demonstrate design ideas to clients.”
