The Police Fun City, Abu Dhabi

The Police Fun City project in Abu Dhabi, a mixed use indoor play, bowling, cinema, health and fitness and outdoor activity centre, recently called upon DPA’s expertise.

Working in conjunction with project manager and development specialist EC Harris, DPA began by advising on the play element within the project as well as assisting with the feasibility elements.

But we in fact ended up redesigning the whole concept masterplan, providing an illustrative masterplan to show how to bring all the various elements together,” Duncan Phillips revealed.

EC Harris subsequently won the contract to carry out the second stage design of the venue with DPA and Duncan added: “This was our first piece of international work and I am delighted with the outcome. We took advantage of the models used at our 360 Play children’s play centre in the UK and brought them into this project, again showing the benefits we can offer as both operators and designers.
