Hilton Garden Inn Dubai Mall of the Emirates was a design and build project with GAJ appointed as lead consultant under Laing O’Rourke as the main contractor.

The project site is just over 9,500 sqm in area, with an existing hotel occupying just under half of the site. The Hilton Garden Inn occupies the remainder of the site, and also connects to the existing hotel at basement level.

Design proposals for this hotel were governed by brand guidelines that clearly set out the design parameters for the building’s look and feel. Clear direction was provided on materials, form, massing, composition and feature lighting which we sought to respect whilst also responding to the local context. The end result has been hugely successful setting a new benchmark for Hilton Garden Inn hotels in the Middle East.
