About Royal Atlantis

Located on the northern crescent of the Palm Jumeirah, Royal Atlantis is positioned between the Persian Gulf and the artificial lagoons created from the formation of the palm’s landmasses. The curvilinear form of the building is punctuated by voids within the structure, creating sheltered outdoor spaces shaded from the desert sun while also taking advantage of gulf breezes passing through the openings to providing passive cooling for the building.

The structure’s vertical transportation system is set within six reinforced concrete building cores, from which extend a series of shifting floor plates arranged as a set of two towers stepping down to a large central voided topped with a “spa-bridge”. The spa-bridge features an expansive amenity deck complimented with pools, lounges, cabanas all located more than 100 meters above the ground.
