The Amman complex

The design for the Saraya Headquarters and W Hotel Tower is the product of the integration of the constraints of the triangular site, programmatic requirements, and cultural inspiration, combined to form a richly-layered reflection of Amman’s spirit of place. The mass and textured surfaces of the exterior skin allow the desert sun to transform the building throughout the day, creating an experience that is intrinsically connected with its environment and heritage.
