Rotating atriums give Riyadh’s first Hilton an unusual twist

November 03, 2010 |

Goettsch Partners, in collaboration with Omrania & Associates (architect of record) and David Wrenn Interiors (interior designer), is serving as design architect for the five-star, 900-key Hilton Riyadh. Currently in the design phase, the complex includes two pinwheel-shaped towers—a 20-story, 650-room hotel tower and a 14-story, 250-unit serviced apartment tower—connected by a central 44,100-sf multipurpose facility. The $450 million project also includes 70,000 sf of meeting space, multiple dining facilities, and separate men’s and women’s spas, health clubs, and swimming pools. The towers are oriented to maximize views while providing solar shading; both towers have undulating glass façades. Inside, hotel guests will see multiple two-story atriums that rotate around the elevator core.
