The Gate Village
Updated: 27th June, 2021

The Gate Village

Gate Village consists of a complex of ten buildings beside the Gate building in DIFC. Construction was completed in 2008.
The Gate Village
The Gate Village is an area located within Dubai International Financial Centre, Dubai.

The buildings are on a raised pedestrianised podium with shops, restaurants and galleries. Car parking is below the podium and above it are offices and apartments, with penthouses on the top two floors.

The podium is surrounded by studios for both living and working.

In the architect’s words: ‘The height and mass of the buildings is designed to shade the podium streets naturally, as in traditional Arab villages, tempering the harsh climate. The pedestrian streets vary in width and length and open onto larger piazzas. The use of shop canopies gives a human scale’.

‘Natural stone is used throughout on the facades with differing texture and treatment according to their orientation. Deep window reveals shade the glazing, while allowing daylight into the buildings. Other shading devices to the windows have been developed from traditional mashrabiya screens.’

Throughout the complex a series of large external stair towers create a strong identity for the development.

In July 2015 DIFC announced the launch of Gate Village Building 11. With  a total built-up area of 200,000sq ft it is scheduled for completion by the middle of 2017.
