The Gate Building

Dubai, United Arab Emirates

The Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) headquarters is a gateway to a new financial district in Dubai. The Gate is a global center for leading financial businesses designed to embody the DIFC's vales of integrity, transparency and simplicity. The building is an iconic element of the master plan, which called for a promenade ending in a triumphal arch, modeled after Champs Elysees and Arc de Triomphe. Sitting on an axis with the Emirates Towers and the World Trade Centre, the building frames these two Dubai landmarks.
