Discover this extraordinary building in the heart of Dubai

The OPUS hotel, located in the heart of the Business Bay district in Dubai, has a unique cubic shape. And since a picture is worth a thousand words, check out the photos of this architectural innovation.

Dubai always finds a way to impress the rest of the world, and the novel architecture of the OPUS Hotel is no exception. It is the creation of the Anglo-Iraqi architect Zaha Hadid, known for her exceptional designs, who passed away in 2016. 

The hotel is built on the basis of two glass towers on which the landscape is reflected, which are assembled to form a cube with perfectly straight ends, while the rest is completely … curved! This architectural feat is unprecedented in the world, and is a real ingenuity. 

 

 

This futuristic design is not confined to the exterior façade alone, as the interior design of the building is also based on furniture with multiple curves, in a design that is almost reminiscent of certain science fiction films

 

 

The OPUS hotel has several restaurants, both gourmet and family, as well as a beauty salon, a gym, and a 20-meter long swimming pool on the first floor terrace. No less! 

 

 

Located just minutes away from Dubai Expo 2020, the location is ideal for exploring the heart of Dubai. If you want to book one of its 74 rooms, expect to pay an average of 370 euros per night.
