The given requirement was to design a unique 80 room boutique hotel at Meydan Beach Club while
still maintaining the exiting beach club. The site surrounded by high-rise towers overlooking it, created an enormous challenge to insert a beach resort / boutique hotel into such a context. As a result we proposed a floating hotel on concrete pontoons stretching into the sea along a pier. Ibda Design’s approach relies on a dialogue between the site, the program, the social and the environmental contexts along with the end user requirements.
