Lighting changes through the day in this Chinese restaurant at Atlantis Dubai

Dubai’s Atlantis Palm hotel is using a lighting scheme that changes with the time of day to enhance dining experiences at its new Yuan restaurant.

A multi-level space that includes a variety of vistas and areas of focus, the venue serves Sichuan Chinese cuisine in a traditional setting. Its array of surfaces are designed using an assortment of materials and colour palettes to create an elegant and harmonious setting.

Charged with designing the front-of-house lighting, design consultancy DPA was given a main objective of keeping the number of ceiling-mounted luminaires to a minimum. It has delivered a system that discreetly complements the space, deploying concealed lighting wherever possible to enhance Yuan’s ambience without compromising the look of spaces that include the Oriental Inner Courtyard and Principal House.

All of its elements, which include ambience, accent and functional lighting, can be programmed and balanced in line with the time of day and the season. Each luminaire group has preset scenes covering periods from daytime and lunchtime dining to early and late night.

The five-star Atlantis Palm was the first hotel on Dubai’s artificial Palm Jumeirah archipelago, which opened in 2008. Part of South Africa-based Kerzner’s Atlantis hotel brand, it now houses 23 restaurants, bars and lounges.

DPA’s previous projects in the UAE include the Bentley Bistro & Bar in the Galleria Mall on Abu Dhabi’s Al Maryah Island, Le Royal Meridien Abu Dhabi and Mint Leaf of London’s Dubai outpost in the Emirates Financial Towers.
