Hilton Garden Inn Hotel Project - Riyadh
The scope of work of this project involves construction of a 21 storey hotel building, will be Located on King Fahd Road in Riyadh in Saudi Arabia. The project comprise more than 150 hotel rooms, eight meeting rooms, service facilities as well as commercial rental space, which will be financed by the fund manager. As the initial design progressed, it became clear that in order to meet both client aspirations and operator brand standards, the hotel and services suites would need to fall under separate brands. On this basis a concept evolved which created a dual branded hotel development, where the hotel and hotel apartments were different brands with shared back of house facilities to maximise efficiency. According to design's point of view it was important that this duality was reflected in the architectural approach. Each hotel needed its own identity (and access), while the overall development also needed to read as one. GAJ, developed a number of different massing options which explored this approach, while also looking into the practicalities of obtaining the required convenience blend and operational efficiencies. The real investment company of client has signed an agreement with Hilton to manage the hotel. The management and operations agreement will extend for 20 years starting from the date of operation of the hotel. The hotel is expected to begin operation in 2021.
