At the Waldorf Astoria Dubai International Financial Centre, St. Trop is a pool deck on the rooftop. During the day, it’s a chilled deck that’s great for relaxation, and at night, it transforms into a fun party venue.

In the brief, the client proposed that LW creates an energetic poolside bar that’s inspired by St Tropez trends and the area’s aesthetic of enjoyment for locals and visitors alike. LW’s lead designers on this project were inspired by the French Cote d’Azur’s unique vibe and exclusive luxury yacht ambiance. The concept behind the space was to develop a venue that was fun with contemporary elements. It needed to be fitted with unique décor that allowed a transformative effect in the transition from day to night. For the daytime ambiance, the goal was to give the space a fresh new feeling with a relaxed atmosphere. But during night-time, the space transforms into a clublike area with coloured lights highlighting the pool as well as the floor and bar. St. Trop’s most distinct feature is its ability to attain two different aesthetics within a 24-hour span.
