Resort Hotel, Abu Dhabi.
Rick Shands, Architect. Proposal for a 200-key five star hotel with 10 villas fronting an existing golf course fairway. The challenges of the site lie in the relatively narrow beach frontage and the constricted site access from the road. The proposal builds an artificial ridge (covering underground parking), that creates a hotel zone and a villa zone. Villas are entered from a top level, with bedrooms on a lower level facing the golf course. The hotel divides into several zones, and a separate entry forecourt is provided for the conference/ ballroom facilities.
