Abu Dhabi, UAE

A grand wooden bridge links the outside world to and introduces Anantara Sir Bani Yas Island Resort. Harmonious yet varying, a diverse range of environments combines relaxed openness with intimacy.

Pergolas, pools and crafted site furniture suggest zones within the greater space, creating flow and areas of intimacy. Levels within the hard landscaping divide areas practically and visually – adding space, depth and character.

The themes of contrast and balance highlight the subtle interplay between natural and luxury elements to create impactful spaces throughout the resort. Bespoke art pieces, furnishings and furniture epitomise quality and attention to detail adding uniqueness to each space that can be felt.

Textures, patterns and colours reflect a distinctly Middle-Eastern style and work with shapes in the existing structure to compliment the overall design vision. A rich planting fabric has welcomed wildlife offering a privileged view of the exotic landscape from within luxury; completing the immersive island experience.
