neom continues to grow with avant-garde design


NEOM, the futuristic development situated in northwest Saudi Arabia, unveils its latest destination, Epicon. Renowned for projects like The LINE, NEOM introduces this latest luxury tourism destination as it continues to shape the landscape with its avant-garde mega-cities. With both residential and hotel programming, this unveiling marks another step toward the group’s goals of redefining the standards of hospitality and architecture in Saudi Arabia.


Punctuating the Gulf of Aqaba, Epicon will emerge from NEOM’s desert expanse, designed to resemble a glistening mirage on the horizon. The property will comprise two futuristic towers, one soaring to 225 meters (740 feet) and the other reaching 275 meters (900 feet). It will bring a luxury 41-key hotel and fourteen suites and apartments — all neighboring an Epicon resort, which will comprise an additional 120 rooms and 45 beachfront residential villas.

futuristic ‘epicon’ towers to rise along the desert coast


With sleek and futuristic architecture, the Epicon towers at NEOM will be recognized at once by their use of vertical space — because of their tall and slender massing, the buildings will occupy a relatively small footprint on the desert landscape. The team envisions the project to introduce a gateway to the future, and an escape from reality. Guests and residents will be invited to relax at a beach club and indulge in wellness treatments at a spa. The site will be discovered along the Gulf of Aqaba, which opens into the Red Sea — the team hopes that guests will enjoy water-sports and explore the natural surroundings of the coast. Epicon’s announcement comes on the heels of Leyja, NEOM’s sustainable tourism destination set within a natural valley — see designboom’s coverage here!
