Very good design and dynamic.

Dizarh formulates complimentary Business Center and Hotel towers in mountainous area 

The architectural concept of the International Business Center and Intercontinental Hotel appears as a prominent solution for the contemporary appearance of the central part of the city of Yerevan. The land on which the concept is developed takes an active part in the urbanisation resolution, communicating with the Armenian capital’s most impressive Republic square, by Teryan Street and Abovyan Street.

The Intercontinental Hotel building is designed as the dominant structure, with a height of over 100 m and 30 floors, according to the special requirements of the assignment. The lower body sits on the three underground levels and is levelled, while the upper section dominates with two bodies separated physically but communicating in composition. The business centre is also designed as two buildings with no direct link between them. The residential area is situated in the east part of the property in order to provide sunlight all day long.

The facade positioning allows not only penetrating sunlight, but also a visual contact with Yerevan and Mount Ararat. There are two residential complexes within each building. They are also oval shaped by plan, rising to a maximum of 8 floors. The residential area provides space for living and development of activities, which look to ensure better life and correct functioning.
