Night View of the Emirates Pearl Hotel

View from main entrance of Emirates Palace Hotel by day and by dawn

The Regents Emirates Pearl Hotel is situated on the South Western end of the Coastal Boulevard called Corniche Road. It’s direct opposite is the Emirates Palace Hotel. The tower is placed on a plot of land 170m long and 65m wide, the south-end facing the bay of Khor al Bateen, with its characteristic island.

View of main entrance and from beach side

The three-storey podium is carried by a plinth. This ground-floor is totally glazed and contains public facilities such as reception, lounge, all-day dining. It forms a groove between the liquid black pre-cast concrete elements which clad the plinth and the streamlined form of the podium, clad in silver-grey fibre-C. A second groove is defined by the podium roof between the foot and the shaft of the skyscraper. It contains a juice pool bar and a terrace as well as Jacuzzis.

To allow the very-very special guest a comfortable arrival or departure, a helipad is provided on the roof of the hotel, which is an icon shaped as a pearl.

Schema of program

The elliptical core is enclosed by two hotel wings. They are circular segments that twist around the core as the shaft rises up to 215 m height. The twisting in combination with the circular segments is based on the concept „maximation and specification of the view“ in order to coexist with developments in the neighbourhood. Furthermore this creates a dynamic and fascinating three-dimensional appearance.

Animation of rotation of tower floors

Each hotel room has a balcony with balustrades of which are made of stripes of silver aluminium and glass. These balconies are the defining elements of the facade. Coated stripes of glass enable transparency as well as protection from the sun whereas the metal stripes exclusively function as sun shields – all together they form an important part of the concept for the interior climate.
