with construction moving ahead at the zaha hadid designed ‘opus office tower‘ in dubai, we take a closer look at the building’s interiors – also planned by the renowned iraqi-british architect. the holistic project involves the fitting out of the complex’s hotel rooms and apartment units, which are located at the upper levels of the structure.
the holistic project involves the fitting out of both the complex’s hotel rooms and apartment units
hotel suites are designed to cater to local residents and international travelers alike, while apartments within the distinctive scheme combine an urban way of living with a home-away-from home appeal, offering panoramic views across the city below. each room features an interactive media center and with an integrated digital music environment, while sliding and pivoting panels allow volumes to be readily and easily transformed.
living accommodation is brightly and naturally lit
throughout the scheme, clearly defined public spaces encourage the congregation of people from different backgrounds and cultures, allowing guests to engage with one another.
