Maha Desert Palm
Dubai, United Arab Emirates
The interior design of a high-end boutique resort in the desert. A luxurious and modern interpretation and adaptation of traditional desert lifestyle. The surrounding desert landscape and subtle historical qualities of Arabian architecture are the inspiration for the interior design.
The exclusive two-bedroom 845m2 villa is centred around an open-air courtyard with a large swimming pool and has a private rooftop terrace. The living area connects two large bedrooms suites and opens onto the pool and courtyard. Each suite had a luxurious bathroom with an indoor and outdoor shower, and a private diwan and garden. The villa is serviced from a discreet butler's pantry.
with Kerry Hill Architects
The interior design of guest rooms and suites as part of an extension to the existing Amara Sanctuary Resort, housed within a two-storey heritage colonial-style former British Sergeants’ quarters from the 1930s.
Inspired by the nature of the building, the interior design of each space is understated and simplistic, reflecting the cool minimalism of tropical design. The interiors are graced with touches of colonial and tradition Asian accents. These are reflected in the dark timber, rattan, and other textured finishes. Colours are fresh, and monotone but textures are gorgeous.
