So in this week’s What’s Trending with Hotelier Middle East, we speak to experts from Dubai-based Edge Architects – founding partner & managing director Martin Baerschmidt and founding partner & design director Ivar Krasinski – about hotel architecture trends, with a focus on Saudi Arabia.
EDGE is behind some of the most compelling new projects in Dubai, including 1/JBR. Ahead of INDEX Dubai, Design Director Ivar Krasinski discusses the inspiring power of graffiti and his love of minimalism
Edge’s 1/JBR tower in Dubai has a ‘bold and clear design’ says Ivar Krasinski.
Minimal is not a word that comes mind when thinking of most properties in Dubai. After all, for nearly two decades, developers have focused on ostentatious designs for buildings that are then highlighted with opulent finishes and fittings.
One developer is striving to change all that, however, with a new project that is under way off the coast alongside Jumeirah Beach Residence (JBR).
