Nairobi | Kenya

2015 | ID Christian Lundwall

Located in a prime position in the heart of Nairobi business district,  this hotel stands on top of the hill, almost dominating the plain. It is  a magnificent structure that at first glance shows a contemporary elegance and it is calling for and heterogeneous mix of patrons.The ID project  gave the spaces a refined European flavour ,skilfully mixed with touches of local influences. The use of particular colours, of African tradition artwork, of characteristic coating materials, offers a hi-tech and global luxury but with the local comfort and taste.
The complete fit out of the whole structure was entrusted to Interna Contract that in less than a year and following an exclusive design has implemented all fixtures and furniture for the interior and exterior areas of the hotel, providing also doors, lamps, curtains, rugs and artwork, while also implementing essentially civil works such as laying of floors, construction of non-structural walls and ceilings, installation of wood panelling and wallpapers, tiling, paintworks etc.
In detail Interna completed ,bespoke and turn key , public areas at ground floor (lobby, lounges, indoor & outdoor bar, restaurants, terrace ballroom, pool areas); public areas at first floor (meeting rooms, business centre, terrace); guest room floors (rooms, corridors, lift areas, lobby, atrium); 271 guest rooms and suites;  executive lounge at 8th floor.
The selection of materials and finishes has been spasmodic: the natural and solid wenge dominates among the veneers, combined with antiqued burnished metal parts crafted one by one by hand.
