Shuyoukh Port Hotel | PRO

HOTEL AT SHUYOUKH PORT
Client: Confidential
Designer: Focus Design Partners
Size: 30,000m²

Located on the Corniche, alongside iconic structures such as the Museum of Islamic Art and the Emir’s Palace, the Hotel at Shuyoukh Port has been dubbed as a ‘six-star’ property. The form of the building bears an obvious resemblance to a boat. The overall design proposes a highly contemporary form, varied in elevation and height, which nonetheless incorporates the local architectural spirit in an abstract but very recognisable way. The interior of the hotel is a five-story atrium space flooded with natural light that is filtered through a patterned brise-soleil which covers a large skylight. The four upper stories project progressively outward to create a very dynamic space. This also guides the eye towards a four-story waterfall, behind which two grand staircases lead towards the lower level café, with access to the outside pool. Interior materials that will dominate include Carrara marble, natural stone and mahogany wood, gold and silver-plated details, as well as ornamental and art glass.

Maybe they are revamping the port, and the hotel is being built on the Islamic museum bay?
One thing for sure is that all is this is being done by the Private Engineering Office.
