Architecture fans and foodies alike will be happy to hear that the designer behind signature restaurants for some big-name celebrity chefs (think Heston Blumenthal and Pierre Gagnaire) will develop concepts for the upcoming Four Seasons Resort Dubai.
H&H Investment and Development has hired Adam Tihany to develop the interior design concepts of the restaurants at its Jumeirah Beach property which is set to open in 2014, according to ArabianBusiness.com. He will design Souk (pictured), a contemporary take on an Arab food market blended with the all-day dining concept, the Yin and Yang Grill and Aura, a rooftop lounge area.
Tihany, who is the founder of design atelier Tihany Design and has been designing restaurants for more than 30 years, has worked on properties from Shanghai to London and New York, and has been inducted into the Interior Design Hall of Fame.
In addition to Blumenthal and Gagnaire, Tihany has created signature restaurants for celebrity chefs such as Thomas Keller, Daniel Boulud, Charlie Palmer and Jean-Georges Vongerichten. His hotel designs include the One&Only Cape Town resort in South Africa, the Mandarin Oriental Las Vegas, the Westin Chosun in Seoul, Korea and The Joule in Dallas.
