Preliminary design for a Novotel & Ibis in the center town of Jeddah, on a longitudinal plot surrounded by three roads. the building regulation did not allow to have more than a ground floor / mezzanine plus 3 current floors which dictated the horizontal development of the building structure surrounding a central court. the bedrooms were grouped by 3 or 4 in a box-like shape and placed in alternate position to break the monotony of the whole. the rest of the glazed elevation were treated with light aluminum louvers and punched panels to filter the light.
