Perkins Eastman and Wilson Associates to work on hotel project
RAK Properties has announced the appointment of two American firms to provide architecture and interior design services for its Anantara Mina Al Arab Ras Al Khaimah Resort.
It has appointed New York-based Perkins Eastman – known for its interior design, urban design, planning, landscape architecture, graphic design and project management services – and the Dallas-based Wilson Associates, known for its luxury interior design projects.
While the exact scope of work has not been revealed, the two firms have become the latest additions to the list of contractors and partners collaborating on the Ras Al Khaimah eco-themed waterfront resort project, which is due for completion in 2018.
“Mina Al Arab… was created with the environment in mind, showcasing and protecting Ras Al Khaimah’s natural beauty particularly along its natural coastal wetlands,” said Mohammed Sultan Al Qadi, managing director and CEO at RAK Properties.
“Its master plan includes provisions for unique natural trails that will immerse guests in the richness and diversity of the Ras Al Khaimah natural environment. Perkins Eastman and Wilson Associates will help capture these elements in the hotel’s interior and exterior appearances.”
