Mackay & Partners has been appointed by Mara Property Management as architects and interior designers for a four star 150-bedroom hotel in Nairobi.
The consultancy has been tasked with creating a new iconic hotel, which will have a prominent skyline presence overlooking the Nairobi National Park to the south, and the city.
Rising above a landscaped podium, the hotel will house a business centre, conference centre, spa and car parking. The ground floor lobby and grounds will flow through to the landscape and the distant city views.
In addition, the hotel tower rooms have been located to the north to take advantage of the views. All rooms will have breezeways, balconies and solar shading.
Mackay & Partners have previously been involved in hotel projects such as St Martin’s Lane, Sanderson Hotels London, Claridges, South African and New Delhi, India.
