JBR Boutique Hotel is a re-imagining of a boutique hotel within an urban environment. Using a contemporary interpretation of an Arabic village, each suite enjoys complete privacy and relaxing views of Arabic courtyards or the Arabian Gulf. The pure minimalistic boxes are arranged and stacked to break down the scale and create terraces, views and walkways. Privacy is absolutely established by lifting the whole development off the ground level to a podium which is 10m in height. The car parking arrangement is accommodated underneath. The hotel becomes a retreat from the street and from the city.
