The firm provided conceptual architectural, interior, landscape, and graphic design services for this new five-star luxury hotel with 500 keys and 100 luxury extended-stay suites to be located at the “trunk” of Palm Island, Dubai. Amenities envisioned for this full-service destination hotel includes two specialty restaurants, a lobby lounge sports bar, outdoor al fresco dining with a high-energy night club and lanai beach front restaurant. The design centerpiece is an 18-story floating screen wall that “veils” glass bridges to frame views of the Gulf. The challenge was to create a design that draws from the rich Islamic tradition while interpreting the contemporary form for which Emirati architecture has become known.
