El Chiringuito. An Outdoor heaven in the Palm of Dubai
Tipping the Eastern crescent of Palm Dubai, El Chiringuito marked a new venture into the UAE’s dynamic hospitality scene.
The new restaurant housed within an open-beach house structure served by a dedicated kitchen building and set in a matured landscape with a terracing lounge garden, pool deck, and private beach.
El Chiringuito was conceived following a rare opportunity to acquire a strategically central location on The Palm that is accessible by both boat and road with a private beach and open sea
The challenge for ANARCHITECT was to creatively divide the existing landscape and spaces of the property to accommodate new programs.
Adding the new central restaurant structure, kitchen building alongside the new upper entrance garden and connection to the lower pool deck and beachfront area.
The selection of materials was important given the marine environment and exposure of the location on The Palm.
The spaces of the restaurant & beach club are progressive and interconnected; while some areas are completely sheltered, some are shaded with natural bamboo or pergola slats and others fully open to the elements.
The restaurant and lounge furniture were bespoke and custom-designed by the architects.
