Located in Downtown Dubai Boulevard, in the Address downtown.

The design originated from several elements in the Arabian Gulf region and embraced the traditional atmosphere with contemporary setting, to meet the client brief.

The main columns in the restaurant surrounded by golden illuminated stripes clustered together to form a palm tree shape, the most life element in the Gulf region.

These strips distributed in the restaurant ceiling and overlapped with each other as palm leaves, this design helped to draw attention away from the open black ceiling and gave a visual depth.

These strips gathered to form oriental arches which is much known in the region architectural style.

The design also inspired from other elements such as the trunks of palm trees that lined up by one wall in the restaurant with several colors to symbolize the diversity of the Gulf Arab country.

As for the choice of materials and finishes it has been a choice of traditional fabric for furniture and Copper wall cladding.

Red stone were chosen for walls as a reference for the red stone found in Mada’in Saleh heritage area in Saudi Arabia desert.

The furniture design is very modern and simple yet it enhances the general theme.
