Commissioned by Oriental Real Estate, part of the KazKommertsBank group, the Sofitel Almaty hotel development is located in the heart of Almaty, adjacent to the financial district. The project will enhance the urban design for one of Kazakhstan’s key centres.

The new development for Sofitel, part of the Accor Group, combines a mix of uses including distinctly designed hotel and office spaces, constructed around a shared podium that accommodates high quality retail units.

Aedas’ design for the hotel and commercial development will result in a striking street frontage on the welltrafficked thoroughfare and corner location. Both the scheme’s orientation and selection of materials will maximise the hotel and office’s views of the spectacular mountain-range to the south. The central podium, which provides the central focus upon which the series of buildings have been organised, supports a raised communal garden for both office and hotel guests. Designed as a ‘floating pod’, the ballroom is located above the conference room. The development sets the standard for Aedas’ international design expertise in this emerging market.
