WAFI MALL - Design: JRHP

DESIGN: JRHPDSQ principals worked on DESIGN/SUPERVISION TEAM

WAFI Mall is one of Dubai's best shopping malls for luxury shopping at affordable prices. With over 350 shops, more than 30 restaurants, and it's very own leisure complex, WAFI is the perfect place to take in the splendour of Dubai.
In the Souk Khan Murjan there are 150 shops and vendors from across the Arab world.
Influenced by many architectural styles, from Egyptian to Turkish, the mall is dominated by its modern interpretation of the Pharaohs, whose epic splendour is conveyed through exquisite stained glass, intricate mosaics, carvings and sculptures.
The mall is run by the WAFI Group, founded in 1973 and best known for WAFI Mall.

Wafi mall was the first shopping centre in the UAE that actually carried the title of a mall and Joseph was privileged to be a part of it right from the early design stages in 1990 . He had to his credit detailing out the various Egyptian themed elements such as ornamental columns, mall furniture, signage etc.
Many extensions followed since then and Antonio had an opportunity to contribute his talents in developing the detail design of many of these additions.
