Resort Hotel Concept U.A.E
- part of design team : oliver dibrova
Status: concept design-feasibility study
Area: 24.000 sqm
The hotel project will be part of a large sport driven resort. It´s design revolves around the idea of creating a communal space within the volume of the building defining the identity of the hotel. A large atrium space rising over four floors is articulated in a canyon-like fashion and becomes the backdrop for all public activities.
A large spa and wellness area is organised as a continuation of the canyon zone. Restaurant and bar areas are located on a balcony level, while all hotel rooms are positioned to face outside. A zigzagging arrangement of individual rooms generates balconies of varying depth around the atrium.
The design of the hotel rooms follows a rational layout of the necessary functions whereby differing elements combine into two walls along either side: a quiet wall for everything related to resting and an infrastructural wall for the utilisation of media.
Sustainability plays an important an role in the design and can be experienced by visitors. The whole building is wrapped by a facade made of perforated metal sheets functioning as a light diffuser and exterior sun-shading device. Rainwater is collected on the roof while a large waterfall inside the atrium is part of the air-conditioning concept.
