|Beach Hotel, Jeddah
Shifting sand promenade
The beach promenade connects the two hotel buildings and four apartment blocks. It is made up of cuts and slits which hug the water’s edge, creating soft and hard landscaping, terracing down from the cafés and restaurants to the beach front. The podium roof connects the buildings above grade and provides more private visual interaction with the beach. Elements project onto the beach, with the hotel’s pool appearing to float within the bay itself, connecting back to the hotel via a foot bridge.
