KOA has named T.Zed Architects as design lead for Canvas, its first mixed-use development and a showcase of its principles in terms of design, finish and facilities.

The project's strength lies in creating diverse spaces to create something that is spatially unique and socially dynamic. Located near Mohammed bin Rashid Gardens, off the Emirates Road in Dubai, UAE, the development includes a co-working space, a multi-purpose amphitheatre and a gourmet market, lending itself to creating human engagement and social collaborations.

Each of the 70 apartments available within the Canvas building has sunset and Dubai city views. It offers studio, one, two and three-bedroom floor plans, and several layout options.

"The materials used in this project were inspired by rich, lush eco-system surrounding the area," says a spokesman for the project.
Water features, open planted-courtyards and natural light are used to enhance the whole landscape and the commitment to nature is continued in natural, stone, timber applications used throughout the exteriors and interiors. Sales of Canvas will launch in early 2017.
