Grand Hyatt Hotel, Dubai, UAE

Exterior & Masterplanning

The Grand Hyatt is a luxury hotel located near Dubai Creek with 700 bedrooms and serviced apartments. The property consists of four curved interlinked towers set within 37 acres of landscaped gardens.

The façade lighting consists of two distinct elements. An array of dichroic marker lights is located at parapet level on each of the four towers. The apparent colour of the dichroic lenses changes with the viewing angle, so that they shift from blue through pink to white, like a shimmering pearl necklace.

The white-clad sections of the building façade are illuminated with colour changing metal halide projectors concealed within the landscape and at roof level. The building is usually illuminated in white light. The colour change facility is utilised for festival and holidays.

dpa lighting consultants were also responsible for the lighting of the extensive landscaped gardens.
