International hospitality design consultancy Harrison has established an office in Dubai to service a growing number of projects across the UAE. Harrison’s Middle East headquarters are headed up by long-serving Harrison director Jon Bentley, who has worked in the region for a number of years.
Bentley said: “The UAE offers tremendous potential for Harrison as we have significant international experience and can bring creative design ideas to the market fresh out of London, knowing that they will work on an operational level and inspire the ever-maturing Dubai market.”
Specialising in international brand rollouts as well as concept creation and development, Harrison’s Middle East clients include Meraas Holding, Al Tayer Group, Meraki, Jumeirah Group and Food Fund International.
The consultancy’s recent openings include Bentley Bistro & Bar on Al Maryah Island in Abu Dhabi, Eat Greek restaurants at the Mall of the Emirates and on Jumeirah Beach Residence (JBR) in Dubai, Poco Loco on JBR (pictured) and Bikes N Bites, which is located in Box Park.
