Ateliers Jean Nouvel have provided us with extensive material on their design for the W Hotel in Dubai. We share it with you on desMena.
The hotel is conceived as an extension of the corniche promenade. Like a dock, it is set into, and becomes a part of, Dubai creek according to a principle of horizontal platforms in relationship with the water. This building appears as a series of wooden platforms that deploying themselves vertically from the promenade deck up through the hotel room floors to the roof.
