About the project

Designed by multi-award-winning architect Shahrooz Zomorrodi, the fantastical Tr88 House recreation complex on Bluewaters features exaggerated scale and is taking design and recreation in the Emirates to a new height.

From a magical make-believe forest-like Hive Food Hall to the sophisticated 88 Terrace, the approximate 100,000-square foot (9290-square metre) complex offers a multi-sensorial experience that was designed by the architect exclusively for this out-of-the-box project. Bionic architectural architecture principles were used to ensure that the interiors are nature-friendly and enhance the concept. Zomorrodi imported over 190 sustainably grown pine tree trunks from New Zealand to be the main protagonists of the forest setting.

The architects played with scale maximising the scale capacity and volume of the spaces, which includes ceilings of double-height in the food hall and triple-height in the outdoor lounge deck. Tree trunks spanning from six to 16 metres were used to emphasise the design concept.
