卡塔拉澈笛度假酒店（The Chedi Katara Hotel & Resort）位于卡塔尔首都多哈一条通向海边的大道尽头，预计于今年11月开业，由WATG和Wimberly Interiors负责其建筑及室内一体化设计。开业后，它将成为多哈卡塔拉文化村（Katara Cultural Village）的最新成员。文化村占地近一百万平方米，是多哈的地标建筑。除了酒店，文化村内还拥有剧院、音乐厅、展览馆、清真寺、餐厅、商场、公园和露天圆形剧场等。
Situated at the end of a promenade that leads to the sea, The Chedi Katara Hotel & Resort is scheduled to open this November with an integrated architectural and interior design by WATG and Wimberly Interiors. Upon opening, it will become the newest addition to the famed Katara Cultural Village in Doha and one of Qatar’s most iconic landmarks. Spanning nearly one million square meters, the Katara Cultural Village is a landmark in Doha. In addition to hotels, the Village also features theaters, concert halls, exhibition halls, mosques, restaurants, shopping malls, parks and open-air amphitheaters.
The resort’s master plan takes full advantage of its exceptional and unique location. With the Arabian Gulf on one side and the canal on the other side, the building enjoys an extremely wide view, while allowing for easy accessibility from within the village or from the Lusail expressway through the canal road.
The luxury resort covers an area of 66,000 square meters, with 59 elegantly appointed rooms and 32 villas complemented by a range of world-class culinary concepts. Its orientation also ensures that all rooms, lounge and restaurant areas enjoy great views of the main pool and private beach.
Right from the beginning, the client’s goals were clear: to take a cue from the Village’s many global influences, create a landmark of traditional Moghul architecture that not only reflects the grand, historic palaces in South Asia, but that also personifies the peace, tranquility and comfort embedded in the DNA of the modern Chedi brand.
Each element of the building’s exterior is carefully designed to achieve the perfect proportions, hierarchy, symmetry and rhythm. All architectural components, moldings and fretwork were reproduced with precise accuracy to respect Moghul architectural traditions. What would have been open-air arcades and walkways have been closed in to manage Qatar’s challenging climate, but glazed in a seamless manner to avoid appearing out of place.
The interior design is similarly authentic, a balance of the classic style with a gentle contemporary twist to evoke an elegant and tranquil atmosphere. Set against the picturesque seascape, the interior spaces exude the refined and formal style of a traditional palace, while reminiscent of a cool and comfortable seaside resort. Even the color palette demonstrates the tranquil balance of soothing neutrals punctuated by luxurious reds and fresh greens, underscoring the sophistications of The Chedi property.
We collaborated with the client, operator and other stakeholders to seamlessly integrate the exterior and interior spaces for a unified design.
