Our competition winning design for a luxury hotel in Abuja, Nigeria has been featured in the Architects’ Journal. Dexter Moren Associates’ hotel design team beat off competition from WATG and G1 Architecture to win the 250-bedroom project at the summit of Sunrise Hill. The hotel will include a spa, conference venue, infinity pool, sunbathing terraces, restaurant and bar.
Our proposal responds to the site’s natural topography creating a striking landmark at the summit of Sunrise Hill.The V-shaped footprint maximises the hotel’s prominent location offering every guestroom both a view and outside terrace. This is achieved by departing from a typical perpendicular relationship to guestroom corridors, and instead orientating rooms at 45 degrees.
The ‘resort’ feel is further enhanced by a beautiful infinity pool and wooden decked sunbathing terraces.
