Ocean View Hotel DubaiHOTEL | RESORT
A soft, colourful play on light with Energising Zest
The Ocean View Hotel presents a balance between entertainment and relaxation through its numerous facilities while creating a peaceful environment for its guests. This development is the largest single-phase residential and commercial project in the world, lined along a pathway of 1.7-kilometers known as The Walk, “JBR” (Jumeirah Beach Residence). With beachfront cafés, world-class hotels, an eccentric nightlife, delightful shopping experiences, JBR remains one of the most sought-after areas in the city.
The brief for the refurbishment was to capture the feeling of casual luxury and play on the hotel’s recently updated brand values and promise of heartfelt hospitality.
For inspiration we related to Dubai’s more recent recognition as a centre of excellence in industry and compared it with the ‘industrial age’ and the coinciding art nouveau period in Europe, this period witnessed a strong combination of elegant designs and brave engineering, resulting in some of the most admired structures and buildings to this day. The FF&E draws upon materials, colours and patterns that reflect the robustness of industrial works using light and shadow with a fresh zesty palette to compliment the beautiful beach location.
Rippling With Ocean Vibes
Elegantly designed, spacious guestrooms with beautiful ocean vistas. The cool blue interiors complement the view while high ceilings add to the sense of extra space. The colour scheme was inspired by the proximity of the hotel to the ocean. Energizing colours like aqua, turquoise, lime and white were employed that not only brighten up the space but also add a kind of zest. A white linear high gloss panel with a mirror and a back lit coral shape mashrabiya spans the wall behind the bed and creates a dramatic focal point.
City Style By The Sea
The fixed joinery items were maintained to be linear which creates a dynamic contrast with the organic and circular shapes of the furnishings such as the mirror, chairs and table. Furthermore, the corridors were designed to be a continuation of the guestrooms. A backlit panel of coral shaped mashrabiya, ocean hues and organic furnishings were used to achieve this.
