|PROJECT NAME||FIVE PALM JUMEIRAH DUBAI|
THE FIRST URBAN RESORT OF ITS KIND IN THE REGION
The FIVE Palm Jumeirah Dubai demonstrates our passion for luxury hospitality and cements our reputation for unsurpassed quality. It is a visionary beachfront resort that fuses California cool and Dubai spectacle.
The $1.17bn hotel and residences comprises 477 rooms and suites, including 352 guestrooms, 85 suites and 40 hotel apartments, located across 16 floors. Featuring a striking amphitheatre design with a signature central glass cube and 60 metre vanishing pool, the hotel is also home to ten restaurants and nightlife settings, spa, beach, pool, kids club and health and wellness areas.
Through its innovative architecture and design, guests and residents can enjoy a panorama of breath-taking views of the Arabian Sea, Dubai Marina and Downtown Dubai.
The property's attractive position on the trunk of the iconic Palm Jumeirah offers the ultimate urban resort experience. Positioned on the beachfront amidst tropical landscaping, it is a world unto itself while maintaining quick and easy access to all of Dubai's major highways and key tourist destinations.
DESIGN & ARCHITECTURE
FIVE Palm Jumeirah Dubai combines state-of-the-art architecture with a pioneering design that complements its iconic destination. The amphitheatre inspired design brings to life the hotel’s concept of theatre while its elegant, sumptuous interiors and lush landscaping enhance its beachfront location.
FIVE worked closely with P&T Architects and Engineers to create a hotel and residence that is unique and unforgettable. We placed a strong focus on its show-stopping elements - the DNA glass cube, terrace gardens and high-rise ballroom - which not only differentiate the property but ensure it caters for both business and leisure travellers.
The 221 signature FIVE Residences are located in identical wings on each side of the hotel and along the plot boundary to maximise indoor and outdoor living. Each two, three and four-bedroom property boast a private landscape terrace and swimming pools with views across the Arabian Sea.
Designed by Yabu Pushelberg and Nao Taniyama & Associates, the hotel's interiors feature a calming palette of neutral colours working in harmony alongside teal and brushed bronze finishes. Contemporary furniture and rich fabrics similarly contrast with Greek and Italian marbled bathrooms that include mosaic tiling and bronze sculptured standalone bathtubs.
THE GLASS CUBE
The most striking design element of the FIVE Palm Jumeirah Dubai is the glass cube, which sits at the centre of the property. The 15 metre by 15 metre cube houses an intricate wooden creation uniquely inspired by the Islamic pointed arch and the structure of DNA.
The iconic entrance is unlike any other hotel lobby. Designed to welcome guests to the spiritual heart of the building rather than to simply check-in, it creates a transcendental experience with a soaring transparency that offers views across the swimming pool, Dubai Marina skyline and oceanic horizons.
The cube, the largest structure of its kind in the world, comprises 18 vertical structural glass fins, each 15 metres in length, and 84 glass panels. Three smaller cubes attach to the main cube while the other two connect the cube to the two wings of the hotel.
FIVE worked in partnership with British Columbia-based Spearhead Inc. to install the wooden structure. This architectural feat - comparable to building a ship in a bottle - saw the timber and steel specialists follow the scaffolding team around as the sculpture wound its way up inside the glass cube.
