Marriot Hotel Dammam

STATUS: Finished
YEAR: 2014

The architecture of the building is characterized by a strong geometry which is ought to be replicated in the interior design proposal. This is mainly present in the use of lattices which outline a contemporary take on Arab patterns which frame the reception area all across the space. Another great source of inspiration is the desert, replicated in the warm, sand-like hues present all along the hotel, which mellow the rigor of the geometric lines and emphasize elements like the furniture, patterns in the flooring and ceilings.

The rooms tone down the proposal slightly, introducing neutral hues in combination with light wood elements which, in addition to the natural light filtered through the windows, result in extremely homely and hospitable spaces. The motifs on the rugs and decorative lamps carry on the geometrical narrative to add visual interest in a room designed for resting but also to be used as a living area or work space.

The choice of natural materials like wood and stone add, together with the warm palette, the sensation of spaciousness, brightness and intimacy. Other decorative elements like pendant lights or patterns in the carpets across the corridors and lift lobby create an interesting contrast thanks to their organic shapes. Overall, the Marriott Dammam recreates a desert-like feel with all the comfort and luxury of a premium hotel.
