With the Eid holidays upon us, we thought to compile a list of our top 10 favourite projects to inspire you and offer some R&R. So if you are looking for design destinations to visit, we have you covered.
For the Hipster in You
The basic definition of a hipster is a person who follows the latest trends and fashions, especially those regarded as being outside the cultural mainstream. If you know someone who fits that bill, send them to Qahwet Al Murjan, which is an amalgamation of creativity and pop culture
Immerse Yourself in Nature
Inculcating culture, design and breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape, Jabal Al Anantara, situated on a mountain top, is the perfect balance of luxury and nature.
For the Colour Fiends
If you think in colour, and bright tones being out the magpie in you, The W Hotel would be your haven for insanely creative design inspiration.
Steeped in History
For those who crave history, and covet it in all its architectural and design-filled glory, Beyazit Library in Turkey should be on their list.
Dining Amidst Perfection
For connoisseurs of fine food and design, it truly doesn’t get much better than the Dai Forni Restaurant in Kuwait, where the interiors match the food in detailed perfection.
At the Movies
Catch up on some blockbusters of the season’s blockbusters amidst ultra futuristic surrounds at the new Novo Cinemas in IMG World, a multiplex featuring a bold, ‘cosmic’ aesthetic.
Cultural and Minimal
Some spaces speak volumes with very little. The minimal aesthetic of Sheikh Nahyan Bin Moubarak Al Nahyan Centre in Lebanon is one such design, combining a fantastically minimal interior in an educational setting.
One for the chic fashionistas, the interiors of Quartier Chic exude a playful ambience with a distinct feminine touch.
Pierre’s Bar and Bistro at the InterContinental, is the perfect blend of casual yet classy, with tropical elements, perfect for that laid back holiday vibe.
A Retro Treat
The retro inspired interior of Atmosfire Barbeque Pit is enough to make anyone ‘bust a move’ and shout ‘groovy’!
