United Arab Emirates - Dubai

The Opus by Omniyat is the first foray into Dubai by the world-famous architect Dame Zaha Hadid and a destination in its own right. With an organic void right at the heart of the building it is an architectural wonder made of engineering at its most impressive. Located in Dubai’s Burj Khalifa district. The Opus combines a variety of residences and a design hotel operated by the leading hotelier group ME by Melia Hotels International.

The Opus will include a gymnasium, a spa, and a hotel lobby lounge alongside other restaurants and bars. The pixilated mirror-like facade of The Opus appears to melt from the inside and is the highlight of the star architect’s first Dubai project after her distinctive work on the sand dune inspired Sheikh Zayed bridge in Abu Dhabi.
