Project: Downtown Hotel
Description: Hotels & Resorts, Architecture + Interior Design
Location: Dubai, UAE
The hotel's distinctive 'Z' shape stands in the hub of Dubai's cosmopolitan Downtown area. Silver glazing, gray stone cladding and light grey vertical louvers combine to create an imposing, contemporary silhouette. The drama continues inside, where a 17-storey atrium greets guests.Its unique footprint is defined by two triangles – the road-facing entrance, which also encompasses a striking water feature that helps to buffer the noise of the traffic - and the second triangle, which houses an internal garden where guests can enjoy breakfast, afternoon tea or evening drinks.The hotel has a total of 258 rooms and suites, with meeting rooms and a business centre located on the second floor, and spa, salon, gym and pool on the third level. The signature restaurant at the northeast corner is a 2½ height space, while the Sky Bar and fine dining restaurant are located on the 17th floor with double height ceilings and stunning views of Burj Khalifa.
