Emerging from the ME by Melia Hotel, as part of the Opus Building created by the late and honorable Zaha Hadid, resides a garden paradise called Deseo.
Upon our initial encounter with the site, we were faced with a concrete slab of a space which was void of any identity – a pool accompanied by a finite number of undressed seating arrangements, a couple of cabanas, and some stranded planters. Put simply, this wasn’t something that was worthy of being associated with the Opus Tower.
It was our job to create a versatile spatial dynamic which could operate as both a day and night time setting. Predominately taking our inspirations from Tulum in Mexico; fabrics, texture and colour became paramount in our conceptualization, much like the way that the space would morph throughout the day. This was not just a matter of creating a pool deck, moreover a desirable destination that would complement the Hadid legacy.
Ultimately what has been achieved is a glamorous deck and now one of the most vibrant hotel pools in the city. It has been a successful response to the brief and an intelligent orchestration of varying elements to create something truly unique.
