55&5th The Grill

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

Housed in the immaculate St Regis Saadiyat Island resort, this eatery – helmed by Malta-born chef de cuisine Kreaton Cutajar – is an all-rounder in the truest sense: from its refined Art Deco interiors, marked by dazzling ball-drop chandeliers, low-slung leather armchairs and illuminated wine installations, to its smooth jazz soundtrack, an evening spent here is an experience indeed, as are the chef’s American-inspired culinary offerings. Cocktails like its signature Arabian Snapper and a fine selection of cigars are just icing on the cake.

neoalpha global is owned by Alessandro Ayanian, Creative Designer and Managing Director, who has over 20 years of experience in professional lighting having worked on most project types all around the world from large hotel resorts and masterplans to bars, restaurants, government buildings, corporate offices, stadiums, and private residences.

What we do is closely related to our philosophy about the impact of light on the human experience. Our lighting design solutions are premised on an understanding of how light can change the human psyche in terms of wellness which means that it requires exceptional creativity to design and turn sophisticated design ideas into reality.

At neoalpha we believe in 5 core values: Creativity, Innovation, Quality, Passion and Delivery. Our passion to strive above and beyond is our way of life. Specific deliverables vary from project to project, but our design process is often similar. Though there is not a single or finite path to deliver our design, each process does follow a consistent set of core ideas.
