  • RMJM Le Meridien Hotel, Doha, Qatar

    I acted as the  project leader at RMJM for the Pre Contract Services of the newly branded Le Meridien Hotel in Doha, and was the main client interface on the project leading the design team at home office with bi monthly client and operator workshops in Qatar and Belgium. Schematic Design was signed off by the client and Starwood in June 2008. Concept Design approved by local authorities. Project is currently on hold. 

  • Le Meridien Hotel, Doha is an iconic and elegantly proportioned 60 storey tower that provides 77,500m2 of built up area.

    The tower is both dynamic and elegant, rising 230 meters above the ground, providing 249 keys of hotel rooms & suites and 66 serviced apartments within a ground site area of approximately 3000 m2. Also provided are 2,100 m2 of retail and food and beverage facilities and 1300 m2 of ballrooms, function & meeting facilities. 

    Le Meridien Spa and Health club is located on the 31st to 33rd and a 500 m2 SkyLounge and Terrace is provided at the top of the building, with providing spectacular views out over the surrounding context.

    An 8 storey media Art Wall is envisioned onto which media artists can display their works. 

    A unique pre cambered core technology is adopted for this building in order to support the cantilevered floors above level 10. This is similar to the technology that was used for the Capital Gate Project, Abu Dhabi.
