加纳,阿克拉,雷迪森RED酒店 / DOS建筑事务所

该项目位于加纳繁华的OSU,阿克拉区,该项目包含多种功能——办公和150房间的酒店。由总部位于伦敦的DOS建筑师事务所设计。也是该事务所在非洲的第一个项目。DOS事务所认为,应该用当代视野看待非洲:西非已经成长起来,我们应该拥抱和融入西非的文化。

DOS 建筑工作室将雷迪森RED酒店的层数设计为高于11层,酒店以富有表现力的外观为特色,随着一天中时间的变化,建筑表皮会产生不同的迷人的影子。与此同时,办公大楼有一种更加传统的表达方式,一种与更华丽的酒店建筑达到平衡的表现方法。太阳照射和寒冷季节里的降雨都是在阿克拉设计建筑需要考虑的主要气候因素。这些非常丰富的立面表皮设计,通过使用ecotect2011分析软件提取三维数据,设计出符合当地太阳轨迹和降雨模式的立面形式。现场施工计划开始于今年年初,此项建设无疑会加强阿克拉作为非洲西部建筑发展新中心的地位。


located in the bustling osu district of accra, ghana, this mixed used project by london-based DOS architects consists of an office block and a 150-room radisson RED hotel. the latter is the first within this brand to be developed and proposed on the african continent. in other words, the studio’s proposal pays tribute to the contemporary vision that west africa has grown to embrace and integrate within its culture.

DOS architects has distributed the radisson RED over eleven floors, featuring an expressive façade which will generate fascinating shadows for a continually changing appearance throughout the day. meanwhile, the office block has a more traditional expression that creates a balance with the more flamboyant hotel building. solar exposure and rain fall during cold seasons are the main climatic factors that need to be taken into account when designing a building in accra. these have been very informative for the façade design, which is carried out using the ecotecta anaylsis 2011 software for extracting 3D data and subjecting it to local sun path and rainfall patterns. construction is scheduled to start on site early this year, and will no doubt strengthen accra’s claim to be the new hub of west african architecture and development.
