Emirates Palace, Abu Dhabi
Emirates Palace Hotel Redevelopment – UAE
The Palace is an iconic hotel set on a beautiful crescent bay and beach. The project goal was to add value and income to the Emirates Palace. The Emirates Palace Resort was to be repositioned as a unique offering of a selection of the highest quality hotels, residences, retail and a centre for wellbeing. This would add activity to the existing Palace, while pre¬serving the security needed for special diplomatic events.
Included were a collection of smaller resorts, wellness centre, villas, marina and condos, a designer mall and a new amphitheatre for special events in front of the Palace. All of this was to be linked by a waterfront promenade, shaded from the sun, punctuated with gathering places, shops and restaurants, and leading to the Palace.
This project was completed while under the auspices of Hart Howerton, London.
