Residences Blue Thies (Senegal) hotel extension

Thanks to the nearby and brand new international airport Blaise Diagne, Residence Blue is an ideal place to start a journey to Senegal for both business and pleasure. Due to popular demand, the hotel capacity of the succesful Residence Blue needed to be expanded not long after opening. The new volume is positioned on the corner, cantilevering over the road. All with municipal approval.

Preliminary design, december 2018

The new extension will have a generous entrance with reception, additional space for seating restaurant guests on the ground floor. The first floor will facilitate the organisation of receptions, meetings and conferences in a large conference room for groups of 20 – 50 people. The upper floors are set up as a series of hotel rooms along a hallway that connects the existing stairwell to the front side of the building. All receive the immaculate service that has made Residence Blue the succes it continues to be.
