CONCEPT
Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates (KPF)

One of the world’s most preeminent architecture firms, Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates (KPF), based in New York City, is the lead architect on the project. Recognised for excellence and innovation and driven by design, KPF creates buildings that demonstrate an extraordinary degree of craft and detail, elevating them to the highest levels of beauty and practicality.

The design of Atlantis The Royal rethinks the conventional concept of the ‘iconic tower’ and its role in the skyline of the rapidly growing city. Rather than focus on form only, the building centres on extending the idea of indoor-outdoor living. This idea is transcended vertically into a 500-metre-long, 178-metre-tall mega structure, operating as a permeable screen porous to people, light and air. Atlantis The Royal was conceptualised as the ‘deconstruction’ of the traditional sculptural towers associated with Dubai, taking the form of a stack of individual blocks, each offering a bespoke private experience off of a single core. The individual series of blocks enhances the convenience of luxury and amenities for residents and guests, in what seemingly feels like a smaller and more intimate setting. The gaps between become outdoor courts, naturally ventilated and shaded, with incredible views over Dubai and the Gulf.

ARCHITECTURE
Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates (KPF)

The visual identity of Atlantis The Royal mediates between the classic form of the nearby Atlantis, The Palm Resort, and the progressive architecture of Dubai, visible on the coastline running to the northeast. The building’s two terraced towers step down towards one another to meet through the sky bridge, which features dramatic views of the Gulf and Dubai skyline. The bridge is punctuated with pools, lounges, and other amenities that create a lush oasis stepping down to the tranquil Palm Island lagoon. A principal highlight of the building design is the structure’s double curvature façade. The elegant composition and stepped profile create exterior views unlike any other property in Dubai. The views northwards are an uninterrupted scene of the Arabian Gulf and the horizon beyond. Looking southwards is the breathtaking scenery of the Palm Island, expansive beaches and the Dubai skyline. A key and central element to the design are the resort’s Skypool Suites. These rooms feature vast elevated terraces, each with its own private outdoor pool and architecturally landscaped gardens. The pool’s careful positioning provides maximized views both inside, under water and outside of the pool, while still maintaining complete privacy. Similarly, each of these private pools has been carefully positioned providing maximum frontage across the balcony, giving guests an interrupted view from inside the water.

INTERIOR DESIGN
Sybille de Margerie

The luxury interiors of Atlantis The Royal are designed by Sybille de Margerie, one of the world’s leading interior architects. Her ambition was to modernise the traditional, make technology attractive and design for harmony and comfort. Her goal was to provide a different luxury experience that is refined and timeless. Five women were selected to handcraft original aspects of the interior design including porcelain, embroidery, fabric and textiles. Their mastery of craftsmanship and hands have become instruments of their imaginations for drawing, sculpting, engraving, inlaying, and creating an array of objects and precious finishings. With luminous metalworks mixing glass pearls and metal mesh, gilded walls with 22-carat gold wave silhouettes and hand-crafted textiles adding curves and geometric dimensions, the design options are fascinating and fabulous.

FOUNTAINS AND WATER FEATURES
WET Design

The architecture, water views, context and the Atlantis brand were all inspiration source points for the design process of WET’s fountains and water features, with the location of the resort on The Palm creating a constant visual connection to water with the bay and The Gulf on either side of the property. WET aimed to make the connection to water physical so visitors felt as if they were always surrounded by water. The connection is made through a series of water fountains along the resorts main axis that guide visitors from its entry to their climactic finale, the Horizon and Skyblaze feature. The fountains highlight the power of water’s presence and its effect on us whether creating quiet, contemplative moments or the spectacular. Collectively, the combination of water and fire together in so many features in one location is something never done before anywhere else in the world.
