Grayscale Interiors (Grayscale) was engaged to complete the design and procurement across Furniture, Fixtures and Equipment (FF&E) and Operating Supplies and Equipment (OS&E) for 21 apartments ranging from studio to four-bedroom creating livable spaces to convert to holiday home apartments.
“Grayscale had four team members onsite with our work mostly involving coordination and lead time management for deliveries due to most items originating from various quality vendors and subcontractors. I personally handled the client relationship management to ensure project parameters were satisfactorily met,” explained Dr. Gary Vastag, founder and Managing Director, Grayscale Interiors.
Invited to tender by Dubai Properties, Grayscale was awarded the project at a contract value of AED2.5 million with a time commitment stipulation for completed works. The site was handed over to Grayscale in a standard built state: namely, walls, floors and ceiling including built-in joinery for wardrobe and kitchen. The full site is approximately 28,100 sq. ft., spanning 21 apartments in a bold variety of color schemes, styles, and layouts.
“We were instructed by our client to deliver a ‘home away from home’ end-user experience pertaining to design and furnishings. This led to substantial sourcing, as each style of apartment required a distinctive personality and living experience. Various items, such as electronics and bedding, were sourced from the same suppliers,” continued Vastag.
