The Hilton hotel, Bahir Dar, Ethiopia is the leading tourist destination, situated in the north Amhara region. Bahir Dar is elevated 1,800 m above sea level and is the port on the south of Lake Tana.

The site provides the hotel with amazing views towards the Blue Nile river and the beautiful Bahir Dar landscapes.
Pleasant tropical climate allows for the architecture to open huge facade panels and break the boundaries between the interior and exterior.
Bahir Dar’s culture and traditions had a great impact on the design of this hotel. Patterns, forms and colours were taken from Ethiopia’s everyday life; food, music, art and nature. The lobby consists of the reception area, lobby lounge, coffee shop, tech lounge and terrace.
The design of the corridor is reflecting the surrounding and lanscape with it’s textures and colours. Custom made carpet introducing the Blue Nile into our design is an accent piece, the main feature of the corridor design.
