Armani Hotel at the Burj Khalifa

Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Client: Giorgio Armani Hotels & Resorts / Emaar Properties
Architect: Skidmore, Owings & Merrill
Interior Designer: Wilson Associates
Completion: 2010

Exclusive to the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest tower, the Armani Hotel is the ultimate runway of hospitality. A private entryway leads guests into a sophisticated lobby of refined materials and opulent colors, all carefully selected by Giorgio Armani himself, and are featured throughout the hotel. The lighting is not meant to be a showy display of interior lighting, but a careful exposition of restrained and minimalist design. All luminaries and associated hardware are carefully concealed, creating an ambiance that is simultaneously modern and traditional.

This 11-story hotel has 160 custom designed guest suites, offered in eight variances of luxury, each uniquely tailored to the contours of the rising tower and are clad in specialty fabrics, dripping in Armani subtleties. The light within each guest room is controlled by a highly intelligent dimming system that presents the appropriate lighting scheme according to the time of day and the user’s location within the suite.

The hotel features a spa, nightclub, and five world-class restaurants, adhering to the soigne Armani aesthetic of Italian elegance.
