While approaching in a contemporary way, we have layered pattern and texture in an almost Moghul sense. As Mandarin Oriental arrives in the Middle East,it has travelled along the Silk Road,collecting thoughts and ideas along the way. With planning approached in traditional Islamic style, the garden from the arrival porte-cochere are carried through the enormous lobby space with water features and walk-ways,stone bridges and teak decks ,you arrive at the beach. It is an urban resort, blurring the lines between outside and in. Our pathway takes us through a forest of light as canopies of crystal sparkle like the ocean in front. It is a giant mansion on the sandy dune, it is the Riviera of Dubai. An eclectic mix of contemporary East and West. Rich on texture and reflection, from the weathered travertines to the polished timbers, subtle leathers,shimmering bronze. Linen textures,velvet, embroidery ,all combined to create an inviting and relaxing interior,which morphs from sandals to deck shoes and a blazer. Patterns can be as simple as a cerused oak plank wall or travertine laid in multi-directions feeling more like a cobblestone street. The Mandarin Oriental Jumeira, Dubai interior design is one that combines a variety of influences as it is a reflection of the dynamic, vibrant city of Dubai. At the start, we visited the site,one side, the sparkling ocean and sandy beach, the other,the metropolis of Dubai. Big contrast. As landscape was limited, maximising the indoor-outdoor spaces were critical as the property was being developed as a resort, some say an urban resort.
