JPA Design merges with Dubai-based S2 Interiors
UK and Singapore headquartered JPA Design, has expanded to the Middle East merging with Dubai’s S2 Interiors. S2 Interiors is an award-winning boutique interior architecture and design studio. The new entity will trade as JPA Design and will be based in Dubai, serving the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). This will add design skills and resources to the teams in the London headquarters, and to Singapore, which serves Asia.
Established in 2015, S2 Interiors specialises in residential, hospitality, commercial, and government projects. The company has worked on projects for leading global property developers, hotels and several government agencies in the Middle East. Notable projects include 17 ICON BAY, a premium waterfront residential development in Dubai, the Ibn Battuta Avani Hotel, the Premier Inn Dragon Hotel, the Al Khail Avenue Double Tree Hotel, and the Dubai Labour Courts.
James Park, JPA Design founder and Principal said: “JPA Design has a long history of delivering high-quality design solutions in the hospitality industry, notably Europe and Asia. We were fortunate to meet and now merge with S2 Interiors. S2 Interiors has a fantastic record of exciting projects, and their team’s skillsets and dedication to beauty and functionality matched us well. With teams in three of the world’s design centres – London, Dubai, and Singapore – we are better able to meet the dynamic opportunities in Europe, the Middle East and Asia with a unified offering.”
JPA Design has named Samiha Al Hashimi, founder and managing director of S2 Interiors as the managing director of the JPA Design, Dubai to lead the team, overseeing operations, business expansion and projects in the Middle East & North Africa (MENA) region.
“This merger marks a new chapter, broadening our expertise and capabilities in the industry. As JPA Design we will be able to strengthen our commitment to offer exceptional designs and deliver comprehensive services combined with creativity, technical expertise, and attention to detail,” said Hashimi.
