Nested between the rugged Hajjar Mountains and the sandy Gulf of Oman coastline, the design of the Intercontinental Fujairah Resort is an oasis of sorts, creating a welcoming and relaxing respite. The architecture is modern and fresh, allusive to the heritage of the area without being a pastiche of it. The sea facing facade is sheltered from the strong Middle Eastern sun by recessed balconies and a set of 2 vertical screens per room bay. This project was developed in collaboration with K/M2K Architects.
