Architecture Under African skies

Tribe Hotel Architecture

Architecture Under African skies

From every side of Tribe, the building’s nonconformist angles jut toward blue skies, with sand-colored blocks and...

stainless steel columns laid artfully in vertical rows. A soaring atrium shoots four floors up, past curved armchairs and sand-colored walls that convene at unexpected intervals. Granite, slate, and marble help to temper the warm tones, and right angles are almost nonexistent. There’s even a granite table submerged in the heated pool, which those on business can use for alfresco meetings.

Interior design Les Harbottle

Carefully crafted gourds, figurines, and artwork from all over Africa stare back from tables, walls, and crannies...

providing unexpected moments of beauty and giving the hotel a distinctive, African voice. Working with Les Harbottle of design firm Plan One, Tribe owner and all-around visionary Shamim Ehsani managed to incorporate illuminated pendants and table lamps, throwing layers of light across the public spaces.

Sustainability Keeping an eye on our Conscious Hotel Principles

“Tribe was conceived from the simple belief that we coexist on a single planet and there is only one Tribe that matters: humankind.”

Tribe Hotel converted the rooftop terrace into an organic garden, used renewable concrete bricks for construction, and worked with a local team.

The hotel uses efficient appliances and heating/cooling systems, a low-emissions hot water boiler, and LED lights that save over 80% in power consumption by lighting.
