The project brief required that we designed an hotel, mall and conference centre situated on the lake in Tunis. The concept was for an hotel which set a new standard of quality from other hotels in the region and one that in time would achieve a destination status. The brief was constrained by the proximety of Tunis international airport requiring a low rise solution. Iconic buildings traditionally are high rise so our solution was to create a spectacular roof form enclosing lake view guest rooms and the mall and public areas towards the land side. TTS our Client are Tunisia’s leading travel company operating hotels and a charter airline amongst other interests.
