Ibra, Oman 2013
Architecture – Engineering – Landscape – Planning
The Ibra Hospitality Complex consists of a 3 star hotel, a hospital and two apartment blocks. The project was designed along the local codes requiring a major setback from the highway and a three meter ground floor arcade along the front of the building. The style of the buildings was developed along a three meter module that went from a traditional arched colonnade facade across the hotel, to a more modern interpretation of the module across the hospital. The layout of the complex was developed in response to the existing topography and solar orientation.
