Rockwell Group has completed the interiors for Le Meridien in Oran, Algeria.
The deep-rooted, vibrant history and culture of Oran provided inspiration for the interiors of the 300-room Starwood hotel.
The property will feature a vast three-level glass box lobby that rises up from pools of water at the base of the hotel tower.
Inside, artistic motifs will cover the glass and two 40-foot-tall lanternlike tents will serve as lounges for guests.
The “library box” will include works by the “Le Méridien 100,” a collection of artists, thinkers, and designers that have all inspired the Le Méridien brand.
Among the hotel’s three restaurants will be Latest Recipe, inspired by recipes from around the world with huge wooden peg-board walls displaying daily menu ingredients and running the length of the entry hall.
There will also be an outdoor seating area, surrounded by reflecting pools; an 8,600-square-foot spa; and two presidential suites, all of which will be sophisticated, sleek, and ruby-red accented.
