The program called for the renovation of existing residential complex -located along the Prince Turkey Street, known as Corniche road- to a suite hotel by keeping the structural part and upgrading a 7000 sqm of space. Feasibility study considers the existing structure can hold good for 8 floors. The design study recommended an additional 2 floors above the existing 4 floors. Given the desire to bring the best suite hotel, design team developed:
• The ground level for front desk, general services and parking.
• The first four levels were designated for guest room suites of varying sizes from studio type to single and double bedroom type.
•The fifth level includes two fine dining restaurants & a central kitchen. The dining outlets been facilitated with separate guest and service elevators different from those serving guest room.


•A gymnasium located at the roof deck.
The facade is proposed to be face lifted with a combination of aluminum cladding and GRC panels.
