Motor City’s Hi-End Recreation & Hospitality for Tourists, Locals and Royalty

The Renaissance Hotel forms another part of the larger scheme of recreation, hospitality and entertainment services designed at Motor City, Dubai’s F1 – X themed district. Located on a site across the road from the center of F1 action which is the AutoMall, the hotel connects to it via a bridge at its podium level for seamless integration with the AutoMall complex. The levels below the podium reflect the dynamically layered architecture of the AutoMall and contain all the public and admin program like a magnificent lobby lounge, a grand ballroom, restaurants, indoor and outdoor pools, spa & wellness facilities, boardroom, business center among many other facilities. A large basement provides ample parking and space for services, while the 28 stories tower has a 354 keys hotel with guestrooms and suites for exclusive guests and royalty.

Architecture Mirroring the F1 Race Track

As the slender tower of the Renaissance hotel rises up 28 floors above the podium, it mirrors the speed and action of the race track, literally as well as through architectural metaphor. The fully glazed façade on the flatter face of the tower reflects all the action taking place at the racing precinct, while its other slender façade is treated in looping ribbons that gently bend midway through the tower’s height, breaking the monotony of the flat faces. The looping, bending bands delineating the slender façade mimic the trail of the racetrack.
