Case study - Rapid Select

Takeda Middle East HQ

Dubai, UAE



The new 23,000 sq ft office for leading Japanese pharmaceutical company, Takeda, blends traditional Japanese aesthetics with modern, data-driven efficiency to create a stunning contemporary office, anchored in its local environment.

Takeda wanted design firm Roar to design an office that rivalled their new headquarters in Tokyo, Japan.

The concept drew inspiration from the company’s Japanese heritage while also celebrating the local context in order to give the project a sense of place and differentiate it from other Takeda offices around the world.

It incorporates pops of the Takeda red, the form of its triangular logo and, more subtly, the corporate philosophy it calls “Takeda-ism”, which is based on four values: integrity, fairness, honesty and perseverance. These values are evident throughout the office in the material selections and sustainability goals.

Our aligned dealer Metre Squared supplied Roam and Graph carpet tiles from our Rapid Select In Stock programme for this stunning, contemporary interior. 

The project was a Category Finalist in our 2020 Shaw Contract Design Awards.
