This will become the first Mandarin Oriental Hotel operated in the Middle East region. The project consists of 195 hotel keys, banqueting and meeting facilites, and two signature F&B outlets. The property is located on Jumeirah Beach in Dubai.
The hotel was designed by Dubai-based DAR Architects and 40NORTH was responsible for the design of all outdoor areas of the project. The project is currently under construction and is expected to open to the public December 2017.
Investors who purchased the former Evans School building in Denver’s Golden Triangle neighborhood plan to create restaurants and retail space while opening offices in the upper floors of the historic landmark. City Street Investors renovated Union Station in Denver’s Lower Downtown and see a similar vision for the Evans School building. Dining options, stores and commercial space will be a part of their goals over the next 18 months.
Designed in 1906 by architect David Dryden, the Evans School served several generations of public school students before being shuttered in the 1970s and put up for auction.
This is a house that my wife and I have been lazily designing for a number of years. It started as more of a whim than anything, but eventually it has become something that we intend to build one day.
In the meantime, I've used this model as a test bed for a broad range of render experimentation from lighting, to material generation, to the Photospheres below. It's been a great outlet for design expression and technical learning and, who knows, maybe some day we can build it and have you over for a highball.
