Suave is an inspirational F&B outlet that serves as a relaxation, inspiration, and communication zone for artists, designers, and dreamers.
Inspired by the ancient Greek Hypostyle halls and courtyards, the space aims to translate a utopian and feel, the space is situated on the outskirts of Dubai and right on the sea.
The addition of the conversation pits that are a part of the floor slab gives the guests an illusion that they are sitting on the water. The translucent curtains, pastel color palette, and a fusion of Turkmen and Italian food give the space a unique identity.
The project is part of Hotel Regeneration, a collaboration AUDesign_LAB, AUD Interior Design Department and Rotana Hotels developed during the class IDES376_F&B Outlet Design.
