Al Maryah Island

Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners as Architects

Al Maryah Island (formerly Sowwah Island) is a 114 hectare mixed-use residential, retail, leisure, hotel and commercial development in the heart of Abu Dhabi. It is designated by the emirate’s Urban Planning Council to be the capital’s Central Business District (CBD).

Working together with Taiwanese property developer Farglory Group, RSHP has designed Maryah Plaza, a four-tower luxury waterfront complex on the island providing approximately 500 premium residences aimed at both locals and tourists and ranging from one-bedroom apartments to penthouses.

Maryah Plaza has been conceived to complement the waterfront position, with maritime themes running through the design and great views over the water. The masterplan for the development also includes beautifully landscaped parks and shaded open spaces, art galleries, community centres, and a wide range of retail spaces, creating a diverse,rich and vibrant public realm that maximises permeability and connectivity throughout the site.

Situated in close proximity to Sowwah Square, Maryah Plaza will also offer convenient access to the island’s commercial hub, which features luxury retail, dining destinations and five-star hotels.

The four towers will be developed in phases, with construction of the first phase scheduled to begin in August 2014, the first tenants set to be welcomed in 2016 and a final completion date of 2020.

Al Maryah Island | Four Seasons Hotel

Roca as Bathrooms

Sophistication and functionality are the essence when it comes to shaping the bathrooms of a 5-star hotel in such an exclusive environment as Abu Dhabi’s business area.  Two Roca products –the charismatic Diverta basins and the Georgia freestanding oval hydromassage baths- were the perfect expression of Roca’s commitment to design and the best performance.

Why they trusted Roca
Exclusive hotels need to rely on solutions with stylish design and maximum performance. The products chosen in the bathrooms of the Al Maryah Island Four Seasons combine the extraordinary properties of Roca’s vitreous china and the elegant oval silhouette of an hydromassage bath capable of turning any bathroom into an experience of true disconnection.
