BASRA | Basra Hotel | 26 fl | Pro

Client / Iraq Economic Development Group
Location / Basra, Iraq
Project Stage / Design

Hotel Basra is an exciting conceptual design for an inspirational hotel complex located on the banks of the Shatt al-Arab River in Basra, Iraq. The 5 acre site will provide approximately 450 bedrooms in a five Star complex, including conference, entertainment and leisure facilities immediately adjacent to the Corniche.

The sculptural towers wrap around two circulation cores and stretch skywards giving the luxury bedrooms aerial views of Basra and beyond. The bookend building to the south of the towers has a horizontal emphasis and floats over the Corniche, creating a direct link with the Shatt al-Arab River.

This landmark development has the potential to form a catalyst to the redevelopment of Basra and to create an exciting symbol of regeneration for Iraq.

Woah, this is really out there. I think it will be a landmark for the city, if/when it goes up.

They should have made it less bent, so that the elevators can get from the bottom to the top, and not have to have that metal skeleton next to it.
