The Intercontinental Dubai Marina spa has six treatment suites divided into separate male and female areas and a suite for couples which has separate bathrooms. The spa also contains a luxurious Jacuzzi and multiple steam rooms for guests to truly relax in. The hotel also benefits from a fitness centre, where guests can use the cardio equipment and weights. There is also an outdoor pool which benefits from the most astounding view over the Dubai Marina. The use of raw materials, their texture, finishing and staging gives a sober and authentic character to the space. The chosen furniture is exclusively contemporary and visually minimalistic in order to avoid crowding the space which allows the materials to interact with the art and lighting.The visitor when strolling through the hotel feels like he is inside a museum. A special focus has been completed on the lighting in order to emphasize the artwork’s value whilst wandering around. The works are highlighted and studied through the staging of lights, they aim to be in favour of the art through using a perfect mastery of the daylight and the artificial lighting. The artworks seem original toward the rapport and the expression of their scale and materials. Its forms mark the space and the spirits of those who explore it.
Art reigns everywhere through different forms starting from gigantic sculptures to the barely noticeable engravings and paintings. The choice of light fittings is not only done for their performances but also for their ability to furnish space and embellish it as well. Some of them seem more likely to be art installations than light fittings.
Indeed, calligraphy is engraved to bring an Arabic touch to the space which is enhanced by lights. In addition to simple forms that characterize the design of this room, the choice of materials is focused on a fairly original register which seek an uncommon material effect such as matte. The key aspect of the project was the challenge of introducing natural light into the interior of the building, to create volumetric space reflecting the concept of elegance and grandiosity. The process was to cut out ceiling and wall sections, the result was astonishing, the natural light reduced the required artificial light and created a more pleasant atmosphere for guests. Draw Link Group believe that the museographic concept design works so well because of its extraordinary little touches, playing a major role in transforming every space into a story. Draw Link Group adopted a contemporary, simple and minimalist design for a 5 star hotel and spa whilst maintaining the comfort, the functionality of the spaces and the budget of the client.
