Ahlia Hotel

This concept design for the Ahlia Hotel features unique acrylic installations in conjunction with perimeter overflow basins of water. The project is intended to be an amenity for al fresco dining. This design is intended to create a distinction between an outdoor dining area and an adjacent pedestrian walkway. The acrylic pieces conjure the water in the basins while also creating some privacy for diners without barricading out natural lighting. Illuminated by LED lighting the acrylic pieces can change with the season creating a unique dining experience each time. For more on Martin Aquatic’s Water Feature projects, click here.
