092 PROJECT / ATLANTIS HOTEL AND RESORT, DUBAI
FOCUSING ON
ATLANTIS
The Atlantis Hotel and Resort in Dubai is
the crown jewel of the Palm Jumeirah,
currently the world’s largest man-made
island. Dreams are never scoffed at and
plans are rarely halted on this island that
epitomises wonder and luxury. The resort is
a major contributor to this growing superla-
tive, boasting a landmark hotel, the largest
outdoor salt water aquarium in the Middle
east, a state-of-the-art water park, white
sand beaches, stylish cuisine, a decadent
spa and trendy boutiques all at the apex
of the crescent around the Palm. Meant
to conjure the myth and beauty of the
long-lost Greek isle, the Atlantis Hotel and
Resort combines local culture and contem-
porary elegance to create an environment
meant to satisfy a host of diverse travellers.
Focus Lighting drew from all these elements
in creating a striking and graceful lighting
design for the resort exterior, and for two
interior spaces; the Rondo Locatelli (Pizza
Souk) and the Rostang Brasserie.
With unique architectural character, the
Atlantis deserves careful attention in
highlighting the decorative columns, ornate
spires, and ogee arch in the centre of the
structure. The large (27 storey) columns
are up-lit with 34 narrow beam Sill 005 high
power projectors, complete with integral
control gear and 1KW metal halide lamps
mounted on the external ledges of the
building from one metre away giving notice
to the inter-woven diamond pattern (which
ascends the square pillars), while not trans-
ferring unwanted light into the patrons’
rooms. This is accomplished by steep angled
and acute aiming of floodlights to give light
to about 250 feet of the façade.
Kelly Hannon, Senior Designer at Focus
Lighting said, “The shallow ledges within
the architecture meant that uplighting the
27 storey building was a challenge. The
lightweight, compact design and vertical
illumination achieved by using the Sill 005
projectors meant that they were effective
in uplighting the towers. The lighting design
required luminaires with excellent optics
and glare control so that light pollution
would not spill from the exterior of the
towers into the guest rooms. Sill Lighting
was specified for its expertise in exterior
