The proposed residential facility for hotel staff located on the Jabal Akhdar mountain houses the accommodation blocks for hotel staff, facility building with fitness, Cafeteria, prayer rooms, shops etc. and other ancillary services. The design approach was to utilize the topography of the plot by providing all the services below the floor levels without disturbing the existing terrain. Accommodation blocks are categorized in accordance with their hierarchy level with enough privacy and all the rooms are facing towards either central courtyard or exposed to the outer surroundings. The central courtyard serves as the meeting place for the staff, the same is treated with minimal soft and hard landscape elements. Inbuilt seating has also been integrated in these areas to promote interaction among the staff. The building facade has been treated with minimalistic architectural style with the amalgamation of local architectural materials.
