Designed to feel like a home within a home, the new Marquise Square tower in Dubai’s Business Bay offers residents a living space that extends beyond the walls of their apartments. Combining elegance, comfort and a welcoming atmosphere, Dubai-and-Montreal-based VSHD Design focused on creating shared spaces in which residents can feel at home no matter where they are in the building. “The common spaces were created as an extension for the residents to have a place to go to when they leave their apartment: a place where they can work, relax, entertain, or simply have a coffee and use free Wi-Fi,” says Rania Hamed, principal at VSHD Design. “All common areas are designed to feel like a big living space shared by the residents. Hence, being welcoming and comfortable was of paramount importance to us.”

The 29-floor Marquise Square tower offers a range of studios and one-to-three-bedroom apartments that range between 64m2 and 216m2, created by SRG Holding, an Emirati family-run development firm launched in Dubai in the 1970s and responsible for projects such as Sheraton Grand Hotel and Burj Al Salam.

The apartments are designed to feel modern, clean and minimal with a neutral colour tone and a seamless flow of materials and finishes that aim to provide a more spacious feel to the living spaces. While also leaving room for residents to add their own personal touch and style, the design leaves its distinctive mark on the space without being intrusive.
