Area Gross: 55.000m²

Assignment: Competition 2014
The Kerkuk project consists of a Shopping Mall design and a 140 bed Hotel design. The orientation of the plot is in front of an old citadel and along the Corniche Road, one of the main highways.
The organisation of the building volumes corresponds with the existing urban language while at the same time pre-emptive of known future developments of the site.
The Interior Design creates a contrast to the half-closed brick façade interpreting in a modern way the traditional bazar and the caravansary. A pleasant shopping atmosphere results from the brick vault, arches and inner courtyards.
The mall is a fusion between a modern shopping flair and the traditional hospitality and ambience experienced in the region
