Zaha Hadid’s ME hotel Dubai is now open
One of the city’s most anticipated new hotels will open its doors on Sunday, March 1st.
The ME Dubai is located in The Opus by Omniyat building, which was one of Zaha Hadid’s last projects. It is also the first hotel that the Iraqi-British designer ever planned out.
Hadid was famous for her intensely futuristic architecture, with curves and sharp angles, and the new ME Dubai is no different.
The hotel features 74 rooms and 19 themed suites (such as the Passion Suite, the Vibe Room, and the Personality Suite).
The hotel itself spans 2-million square feet, and is comprised of two separate towers that connect to form a cube. The void between the cubs looks to have been ‘cut’ out of the center of the building, adding to the striking nature of it.
During the day, The Opus will reflect and refract the sun, while in the evening LED lights will add character to the building.
Hadid’s signature furniture will also appear throughout the lobby, lounges and reception areas. All of which was either designed directly or selected by Zaha Hadid.
There are also fifteen restaurants opening alongside the hotel.
