Mackay to design Nairobi hotel

Pictures can be found here: http://www.designweek.co.uk/Articles/134049/Mackay+to+design+Nairobi+hotel.html

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.

Never seen it. Though I can't claim to have been to every part of Upperhill. There are many structures coming up and this may be one of them.
