Hyatt Regency Hotel (Dan Hotel)- Mount Scopus, Jerusalem

Jerusalem, Israel, 1981 - 1986

The hotel was built in a terraced pyramid structure, sprawling on a slope overlooking to the old city. The area of the hotel is 75,000 square meters and has 600 rooms, pool, and underground parking.
 

The rooms of the hotel were built with thin pre-cast bearing walls that were joined to each other and to the ceilings with poured concrete in order create a hidden joint and finished, clean looking lines. These walls were planned to act as a framework in order to support each other and the ceilings.

The main lobby is a five story space at the top of the pyramid. The room levels on the perimeter hang from the roof beams, and were designed using a post-tensioned space frame solution.
