Bespoke Luxury at the Royal Atlantis Residences

Located on Dubai’s iconic Palm-shaped islands, (all manmade), The Royal Atlantis Residences deliver a distinctive profile in its Jenga-like façade comprising open-air spaces bridged by sinewy curves. A visionary team designed this complex which resembles a collection of loosely stacked boxes set alongside the Arabian Gulf.

Famed Parisian interior designer Sybille de Margerie brings her sense of European classicism to these palatial residences. “After my first trip to Dubai, I was amazed by the change of light and colors from morning to evening in the city. It was that element of emotion and surprise that became the project’s chief inspiration,” she recalls. “From there we set forth to develop an elevated sense of a luxury experience that is refined and timeless.”

Elie Gamburg, director and architect at Kohn Pedersen Fox, initially felt challenged by the project. “At first, the design brief seemed daunting. Every building in Dubai represents a very distinct identity. The buildings here are uniquely shaped in depth and height and feature a level of architecture rarely seen around the world. Instead of competing with those types of towers, we thought, how can we create a set of different experiences?”

The result is a prismatic structure with fantastic sea and skyline views. A marvel of design, The Royal Atlantis Residences also include works by modern artists who have been commissioned to create personalized pieces for owners made from fine textiles, embroidery, leather and porcelain.
