SOFITEL DOWNTOWN DUBAI

Location: Burj Khalifa District – Downtown Dubai, (UAE)
Scale: 8 Acres
Client: KEO International Consultants
Design Team: Force10 + Wilson & Associates + Fentress Architects + KEO + Delta Lighting + 40NORTH
Construction Cost: Confidential
Scope: Concept Design

This project is in the Downtown Dubai district of the city, adjacent to the world’s tallest skyscraper, the Burj Khalifa. This will be Sofitel’s third property in Dubai. Considering the interiors have been done by the Dallas office of Wilson & Associates, this hotel will undoubtedly set the tone for Sofitel hotel design into the next decade. This project consists of two (2) separate pool terraces and the ground floor circulation and landscaping for the new Sofitel property on Sheikh Zayed Road in Dubai.

40NORTH collaborated with architects in Denver, Dallas, and Dubai to create a modern outdoor retreat for guests and residents of the two (2) 60 floor towers of the development. Views of the Burj Khalifa and the spectacular water show in the lagoon below will captivate the guests and enliven the public and private spaces of the project.

We are provided full design services for the project, which originally was a “clean up” project after the two previous landscape architects had either quit or been fired. The project opened  in January of 2015

Dubai, United Arab Emirates
