The world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa, tops out at just over 2,700 feet and houses the Armani Hotel Dubai, one of the highest observation decks on the planet, and the Tihany-designed steak house At.mosphere (1 Emaar Blvd.; 971-4/888-3804; dinner for two $250). “You take an elevator from the ground floor, and in forty-five seconds you’re on the hundred and twenty-third floor,” he says. To soothe those who are unsettled by heights, Tihany made the interiors “cocoon-like and beautiful, like a yacht.” The end result includes mahogany walls, purple velvet sofas, hand-tufted carpets, and coffee-colored limestone floors.
