Home to the new ME Dubai hotel, the Opus is located in the Burj Khalifa district adjacent to Downtown Dubai and Business Bay on the Dubai Water Canal with a design that explores the balance between solid and void, opaque and transparent, interior and exterior.

The precise orthogonal geometries of the Opus’ elemental glass cube contrast dramatically with the fluidity of the eight-storey void at its centre.

The ME Dubai hotel incorporates 74 rooms and 19 suites, with furniture by Zaha Hadid Design installed throughout the hotel including the ‘Petalinas’ sofas and ‘Ottomans’ pods in the lobby that are fabricated from materials ensuring a long life-cycle and recyclable components.
