Gensler design the new Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Dubai 

Gensler was commissioned to design a new Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Dubai, to be located in the heart of the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC). Given the importance of the site, it was essential the design had a strong sense of identity, reflected the Ritz’s longstanding tradition and complemented the DIFC urban design, also by Gensler. The building will be adjacent to the DIFC Gate building and connected to it by a retail arcade.

The five star, 340 key hotel also includes 124 executive serviced apartments and 323 luxury branded apartments. The 14 storey building is linked to the apartment building by a full-height atrium. Underground is an extensive three-storey car park. The traditional stone façade will be complemented by lush landscaped gardens including a sunken garden overlooked by the restaurants and bars, water features and shaded terrace areas. Amenities include business centres and ballrooms, two restaurants and two bars, a health suite and spa and retail accommodation. Tennis courts, a gymnasium, swimming pool and sun decks complete the recreational facilities. Completion is scheduled for late 2008.
