Private Hotel, Dubai

Location : Dubai, UAE
Area : 4000m2

Collaborated work with TEN Architects, Chengdu

The client, a Chinese citizen with business ties to Dubai, sought to create a private hotel with all the amenities of a larger scale hotel, to serve as a base for his guest travelling between the two countries. Responding to the high temperatures in Dubai the facade features a secondary solar shading screen that both helps reduce thermal load on the building and expresses local culture through the historic Arabic patterning of the screen.
