The new beachfront development, Mamsha Al Saadiyat in Abu Dhabi, is the perfect setting for the latest branch of the homegrown concept store. Havelock One managed the turnkey fit-out.

Uniting three offerings under one roof – a coffee and a barbershop as well as a unique retail portfolio – is clearly a challenging business model. It is equally challenging to come up with interiors that create a cohesive concept while doing justice to each business pillar, separately.
For the second time, the client had nominated shell+core, who evolved the interior design further from the first LOCAL branch at Al Zeina Complex, adding some beach vibes and additional design elements. And it was on Havelock One and our subcontractors to turn the creative thought process into a tangible reality. Our turnkey fit-out scope included some special features and installations as well as design and build for all MEP and HVAC works. Have a look at the distinctive corrugated glass façade of the serving counter and the timber louver bulkhead detail right above it. Or, isn’t that “greenhouse”, a glazed steel frame enclosure, a genius idea to create a separate space for the grooming area, while integrating the barbershop into the overall loft-style concept of LOCAL?
We are very curious to see how the brand will evolve further, given that there might be an expansion in the books. And having received a lot of praise for our craftsmanship and dedication, we are hoping to be part of that story…
