Atlantis The Royal: The newest landmark at the Palm Jumeirah has recently opened its doors to guests, revealing its unique perspective on luxury and contemporary architecture.

Surging 43-storey high and spanning 406,000 m2, Atlantis The Royal aims to reimagine and challenge the confines of modern resort architecture. The sky garden concept is supported by the 500-metre-long, 178-metre-tall mega structure positioned on the outer crescent of The Palm Island. With a focal theme of water and fire, the structure has been crafted by the world’s leading designers, architects, and artists.

The Lighting consultants, Light Touch, were involved in the project for the last 9 years. Lighting works for the structure’s facade, interior, landscape, and beachfront were supervised and executed by Light Touch, a firm with a fresh approach to architectural, interior, and landscape lighting design.

Unlike many resorts, the lighting design of Atlantis The Royal was developed as part of the overall architectural concept, helping to technically refine the design. Designed to create fluidity and depth across the property, the lighting is an integral part of the guest experience and impacts how the building can be seen on the Dubai Skyline, all the way through to what guests see when they look out from their balconies at night.

LED Linear’s ADONIS luminaire were installed into the façade of the iconic building due to their miniaturization of point light source and small form factor with a color temperature of 2700 K. Over 1000 luminaires were installed, most of which followed the concealing element to make sure that the light is felt and a natural variation of light is delivered into the vertical plane.
