Real estate (for housing and office space) is not just a commodity - it is an important service in our lives that needs to be designed as such. Lindsay Miller is the Managing Director of Business Development & Operations at the Dubai Design District and she played an instrumental role in developing this human-centered neighborhood. We discuss the important role of service design and how to make people the most important component of any real estate plans.
