Consultancy has been working on Franco Dragone entertainment and dining location for five years
LXA is nearing completion of its interior design work on the Franco Dragone project in Dubai’s Al Habtoor City, and expects the venue to open in the second half of 2017. The hospitality interior design consultancy has been attached to the project for five years.
The consultancy says that the multi-use complex features a state-of-the-art aqua theatre, which uses 2.7-million litres of water to create a visually captivating experience, above and below stage level. The firm, which has offices in London and Dubai, claims that the integrated development is the largest single-phase development in the Middle East.
Speaking about the firm’s involvement in the project, Sarah-Jane Grant, director at LXA said: “Our appointment on this project underlines the team’s ability to deliver on large-scale and deeply complex projects to world-class standards. This project has been an incredibly important and much loved project for the LXA team and is particularly close to our hearts. It will bring a new genre of live performance to the region making a statement on the creativity and love of immersive, elevated entertainment experiences in a space which is a Dubai first. After almost five years, LXA are thrilled to see such a substantial and internationally recognised project come to life”.
LXA designed the VIP areas and the main lobby space associated with the theatre, as well as a traditional British pub, the Rose & Crown. The firm says that projects of this scale require significant attention to detail, as well as the ability to work on internationally recognised quality guidance.
