AK Design achieved another major milestone in 2018 with the relaunch of the Jumeirah Beach Hotel after significant internal and external renovations over a number of execution phases where we acted as the Lead Design Consultant and the Architect of Record for the project. The hotel has now achieved a contemporary new look with visually stimulating interiors which are more integrated with the architectural style of the building itself. In this way guests and visitors alike can sense that the hotel has been invigorated which was the main fundamental of the assignment briefing. Jumeirah Beach Hotel is now positioned as a resort of choice in the run up to Expo 2020.
Upgrade works included guest rooms, suites and corridors on all levels within the North and South wings of the hotel as well as a complete overhaul of the Ground Floor arrival experience areas which covered the entrance lobby, multi level atrium, various restaurant and retail offerings. In addition, the external works included the total overhaul of the main leisure pool, reconfigured traffic flows to the front of the hotel, steel structure shading devices, new food and beverage bars. AK Design played a pivotal part in this critical mission with all municipality approvals achieved in a timely manner and in advance of the Jumeirah Beach Hotel 21st year anniversary relaunch.
