A NEW DAY BRINGS NEW VICTORY
ALTER EGO Project Group is thrilled to announce that THE MARQUEE hotel has been awarded with a BLT Built Design Awards 2022 in Architectural Design – Hospitality category.
The BLT Built Design Awards is one of the most comprehensive annual awards dedicated to architecture and construction. It encompasses all forms of buildings, projects, and infrastructures that cope with today’s challenges and inspire the next generation of professionals.
This annual program aims to celebrate projects, people, and their passion for the industry and, through the rigorous judging process, to recognize those that have gone above and beyond normal, expected levels of achievement.
The BLT Built Design Awards 2022 judges were impressed by the high level of innovation and creativity of the winning entries that include names enjoying international reputation such as Zaha Hadid Architects, Ateliers Jean Nouvel, Agence d'Architecture A. Bechu & Associés and more.
And ALTER EGO Project Group is honoured to be among them!
Our winning project is the seven-star boutique hotel deep in the beautiful deserts of Saudi Arabia. The unique character of the architectural plan is in the juxtaposition of the unusual mountainous landscape resembling a picture from Mars and the ultra-modern ‘marquee pavilions’ whose outlines and articulate circular geometry make them look like a science-fiction settlement of space travellers on a faraway planet.
The spherical shape of the pavilions does not just look spectacular, it also serves a unique functional purpose: it protects from the scorching sun, prevents sand from building up and does not require regular cleaning. The architectural solutions adapting the buildings to the motion of the sun and to the challenging climatic conditions allow enjoying the environment to the full and gaining a unique authentic experience.
