further images have been revealed of the zaha hadid designed interiors for the opus office tower in dubai. the mixed-use tower comprises two volumes united by a low-level podium base, comprising retail outlets, permanent living accommodation and a luxury hotel crafted in collaboration with meliá hotels international. the renderings illustrate the hotel’s soaring atrium, the first of its kind to open in the middle east. located within the opus building, as part of the city’s burj khalifa district, interiors will exclusively feature furniture either designed or personally chosen by hadid herself. the ‘ME dubai’ is scheduled to open in 2016.
