Localizing authentic character

The client for the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Taba Heights requested that we adapt the design for the Sheraton Miramar in El Gouna for a mountainous location on the Sinai Peninsula.  The main hotel building, with a strong axial entrance and palm court, embraces a large terrace, where the restaurant, bar and other public space afford guests spectacular views toward the Bay of Aqaba. Outlying guestroom groups preserve views of the water from all quarters. Like the Miramar, the character of the architecture, with its plain surfaces, vaults and domes of stucco and brick, reflects the traditions of Egyptian rural vernacular.

Seamless architecture and interior design

To create an immersive guest experience, we extended the vernacular character that influenced the architecture to the interiors. Guestrooms and public areas feature vaults and domes, locally made light fixtures, and colors and materials consistent with the spirit of the resort.
