Abidjan I Ivory Coast I 2017
This project design two building to be constructed on a 20.000 acres plot of land : a hotel and an aparthotels building. Both expand longitudinally and follow the same architectural concept of the wave shape.
Each room and apartment is located on the south side so that everyone has a view of the sea. Moreover each floor (4 floors total) shifts 3 meters to north in order to softened the seaside façade and symbolize the wave concept. Also this way each room and apartment has a terrace. The façade on the road side symbolizes the “inside of the braking wave” and is made by shaped vertical elements. This side hosts, on the ground floor, all of the communal and service spaces of the hotel.
