Hotel Mirage – Egypt
Feasibility project of a 120 suite luxury hotel located in El Alamein. The studio drew its inspiration from the shell which with its spiral shape contrasts the fixity of the architecture and its heaviness by interacting in an organic way with the surrounding environment.
The concept of the Mirage hotel was to think of the building distinct from the landscape but not separated from it.
It had to seem like an extension of the natural environment in which the architecture, although inevitably artificial and complex, manifested itself as having arisen naturally from that place.
