Hotel in Damascus
What is old (the hotel) will seem an ultra modern, hi-tech object, coming out from water with a tectonic movement. The new items will seem the old stuff that this new object shake off . ...A lot of water, different points of view... All new architectures (restaurants, ballroom) will have glass walls that open in the summer, so that they will be transparent, even in winter. The cover of the new volumes will be low-cost, while the old volume of the hotel will have a coating, a skin, more valuable (moving, shimmering, iridescent, emotional).
The coating of the new volumes will also serve as brise soleil to the rooms facing south-west. The new restaurant on the roof, will be a jumble of initiatives and events visible in the distance. It is possible to realize a garage, on one or two levels, below the trottoir Café and Restaurant. All planned activities will have separate entrances, but from the hotel you can access all functions
