The Orient by Isrotel Exclusive Collection, Jerusalem
Hotel / Israel / HBA London / Completed in 2018
Making its mark in Jerusalem – one of the world’s most sacred religious sites – HBA designed with The Orient Jerusalem by Isrotel Collection. Located at the entrance to Jerusalem’s historically rich and increasingly cosmopolitan German Colony in Western Jerusalem; the landmark project is comprised of two distinctive 19th Century Templar buildings as well as a modern nine-story building. The Orient Jerusalem features two high-end restaurants and bars, a museum, a boutique spa, a ballroom and event spaces, as well as a total of 250 guestrooms and an elegant rooftop pool and bar that crowns the building. HBA drew widely on reference to local color, materials and craft traditions, whilst keeping the vernacular of these spaces contemporary.
