Sonara Camp

Swiss Bureau worked in close collaboration with the team at Sonara Camp to create a definitively unique adventure, setting the stage for a truly glamorous destination. Nestled within the heart of the Arabian Desert, Sonara Camp offers a unique dining experience. A new luxury restaurant concept, curated by the founders of the bespoke glamping site – Nara Escape, Swiss Bureau, had the opportunity to design within Dubai’s natural landscape. 

The design intent was to capture a pure connection of beauty and nature, harmonizing the two within the desert’s native surroundings. As an eco-friendly company, Sonara’s core belief is based on sustainability and sourcing ethical products and materials. Working alongside the client’s zero-waste policy, Swiss Bureau worked on providing solar energy as well as using only natural materials when building the space. The open-air bar perched atop a dune features breathtaking panoramic views amongst a casually chic setting. As the main highlight, situated in the middle of the space, lays a large bespoke communal firepit, elevating the guest experience. 

Impeccable decor seamlessly connects within the sandy dunes of Dubai for an unforgettable experience, bringing each visitor closer to nature.
