ZAHA HA­DID’S DUBAI HO­TEL

Friday - - Travel -

While Cuba basks un­der the at­ten­tion of new Meliá ho­tels, at home, Dubai’s first ME by Meliá is set to grace the emi­rate’s sky­line in The Opus, a mixed-used de­vel­op­ment whose de­sign was dreamed up by none other than the late ar­chi­tect Zaha Ha­did; it marks her first Dubai project. The fu­tur­is­tic-look­ing Opus in­cludes com­mer­cial of­fice space, F&B out­lets and night­clubs, apart from the ho­tel. If the ren­der­ings are any­thing to go by, the light-filled, 100-room ho­tel, set to open in Septem­ber 2018, will be ev­ery bit artis­tic and mes­meris­ing as the other UAE struc­ture by the award-win­ning Bri­tish-Iraqi ar­chi­tect: the Shaikh Zayed Bridge in Abu Dhabi.
