Location: Manama, Bahrain
Client: Four Seasons Hotel
Designed with SOM, a 5-star hotel resort & spa, with private residences on a purpose-built private island, the center of the new masterplan of Bahrain Bay. The hotel contains a number of destination restaurants and amenity spaces. The guest rooms range from standard king rooms to luxurious royal suites, with private residences above the hotel and serviced by Four Seasons, taking advantage of unobstructed views of the Arabian Gulf.
The main entry lobby is defined by a golden prismatic undulating ceiling, created from lacquer painted stainless steel panels that are CNC cut, folded, and welded together. The ceiling mimics the central staircase below which connects guests between the main lobby and the lower lobby which provides access to the resort.
