OPUS ME Hotel Dubai – Dubai`s Zahad Hadid`s Masterpiece

It is fair to say that all the works of Zaha Hadid deserve a separate greatest respect. Each project, to which the hand of the famous architect touched, became a masterpiece.

The Opus building project was first introduced by Zaha Hadid Architects in 2007. Externally, the building looks like a giant glass cube with an amorphous hole in the center. In fact, this is an elegant pair of towers, merging into a single whole with the help of elegant transitions from above and below.
Director Zaha Hadid Architects explained the unique idea as follows: “The exact orthogonal geometry of the Opus elemental glass cube is in sharp contrast to the fluidity of the eight-story void in its center.”
The building is one hundred percent environmentally sustainable; ventilation and lighting are continuously regulated in accordance with the occupancy of the space by guests. This approach saves energy and sets the overall positioning of the project.

What is inside?

Of course, the heart of Opus was the ME Dubai hotel, designed by Zaha Hadid. 74 modern rooms, 19 luxurious suites, as well as offices, residences, restaurants, and cafes. Zaha Hadid took a personal part in the interior design of ME Dubai. Her handwriting can be traced in every space: from the main hall to the bedrooms!

At the very entrance to the hotel, behind the snow-white reception, we see a stunning golden wall with a smooth bend, bordered by stripes of light. The protruding glass balustrades of the balconies, the edges of which are also finely framed by golden stripes, have something in common with this idea. On each balcony there is an “island” for relaxation with expressive benches from the Zaha Hadid Design Petalinas collection.

Furniture in open spaces is also arranged in accordance with the project of Zaha Hadid, the main criterion of which is to provide guests with an incredible level of comfort, wherever they are.

Inside each room, the corporate identity of a famous architect is also traced.

The bedrooms are equipped with branded Opus beds, and the bathrooms have Vitae equipment developed by the Hadid line specifically for Noken Porcelanosa.

The mesmerizing view from the panoramic windows of ME Dubai deserves special attention: during the day it is able to inspire for the whole coming day, and at sunset it is immersed in the meditative contemplation of thousands of city lights and the stunning Burj Khalifa.

The concept of the hotel is unique, as well as its appearance and content. A special charm, of course, gives a complete set of furniture from different collections of Zaha Hadid and her corporation. These products are unrealistic to be confused with something else. They are futuristic, infinitely comfortable and tuned to an important part of life – rest and deep relaxation.

The official opening of the hotel was planned for spring 2020, however, the pandemic slightly changed this plan and the hotel began its full operation in the summer. Today, all room categories are available for booking. The hotel itself has 100% safety measures; it is absolutely adapted to accommodate guests. According to the hotel’s administration, additional cleaning and hygiene measures have been taken, and mass events involving close contacts between people have been temporarily canceled.
