Island Hotel and Marina

Sharjah, UAE

The design is reflective of the client’s vision that Sharjah is the “Cultural Capital of the Arab World.” Therefore, the Hotel and related outbuildings reflect Islamic architectural traditions of light and air, ordered space, and use of garden features. To best integrate these principals, a formal arrangement of buildings and creation of Courts establish the framework for this vision.
