Royal Abjar Hotel

Brief design features:

  • Location: Dubai
  • Intricate 3-dimensional arch form roof in traditional style with concealed connections

Initial architectural concepts showed a desire for a buttressed timber roof with all structural elements exposed and a ceiling finished with timber sarking to create a modern interpretation of a classical construction.

Ornamental carved wooden elements were required to be integrated into the timber structure to generate an atmosphere of traditional craftsmanship.
