Putting the WOW in the W

W Dubai – The Palm

  • Dubai, UAE

For the W Dubai – The Palm, dwp looked to the iconic features of the Middle East for inspiration. W Hotels are ‘labs of creation’ and the design is all about taking risks. W is fun. Wherever you are in the hotel, it should be ‘wow’. Young, friendly, dynamic, 24 hours. So that it doesn’t feel like you are in a normal hotel. The interaction is different. The whole experience of being in a W should be enjoyable.W is WOW so every space to be unique’.

This was one of the most intriguing projects dwp|tecnology has had the pleasure to be a part of. Not only were we able to work closely with several highly regarded designers, the operator and client were pushing the boundaries of what a cutting edge 5 star hotel could be. Our lighting design is varied for each area of the hotel and we were able to take advantage of the excellent room geometry and space. The Away Spa is unlike any other spa we have designed, with speciality lighting and unique details in every room.
