Project Name: Hotel 72 by Hues
Location: Sharja, United Arab Emirates
Interior Designer: Draw Link Group
Architect: Draw Link Group

The name of Sharjah’s very first exclusive 5 star boutique hotel comes from the number of rooms available, hence H72, but the idea goes even further in that everything inside revolves around numbers, mathematics and equations. From place names to design concept, everything in this five star establishment is touched with logic and rationality, from the sleek outlines that permeate throughout the building, to the recesses and outcrops that are judiciously placed, projecting perfect angular shadows and giving depth. Sudden flashes of clever and upbeat colours unexpectedly appear, giving surges of emotions where only an instant before cold calculated level-headedness prevailed.

Walking into any of the suites at the H72, the first thing that strikes you is the simplicity and the straight forwardness of the contemporary lines. The design concept is clear: practicality and an open pragmatic scheme that is very pleasing to the eye. With a main banqueting area that can seat up to 92 guests, but also with a private room for a more select dining experience, the modern and elegant eatery provides an all-day buffet with a wide selection of dishes and cooking stations and panoramic views of the corniche. Situated on the first floor is the state-of-the-art business centre.

With a maximum capacity of 160 people, the four separate rooms are ingeniously designed to be modular and sectional in order to accommodate every possible business meeting requirement. No five star hotel would be complete without the perfect tools for its guests to relax and re-energise themselves, and with its pool, gym and spa the H72 has exactly that. Intended to be as soothing and galvanising to the mind as it is to the body, all three areas are designed in the same vein as the rest of the hotel: contemporary minimalist lines with comforting and gentle colours accentuated to the nth degree by indirect and refined lighting, with sudden explosive bursts of refreshing colours that can appear from anywhere, whether it be a wall, ceiling or even a piece of furniture perfectly situated in its calculated position.
