The Address Dubai Mall is close to completing its full refurbishment, with its second phase drawing to a close.

Emaar Properties reopened the hotel in the fourth quarter of 2018 after the first phase of its refurbishment was completed.

The hotel's initial design was delivered in March 2017 by New York's Meyer Davis Studio, while SSH was contracted to propose a design that met the client's budget and timeline constraints in a two-phase programme.

These two phases included a three months' full shutdown of public areas and partial guestroom refurbishment, and a three months' partial shutdown to complete the guest room upgrade floor-by-floor.

SSH Interior Design was responsible for the refurbishment of public areas, guestrooms and suites. Its scope of work included the 243 hotel rooms and the club lounge, as well as the porte-cochère, arrival lobby, reception lobby, and lobby lounge. The ballroom, pre-function, and meeting rooms, in addition to the business centre, were also refurbished.
