Hotel Nacional

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Renovation and expansion of an existing hotel complex designed by Oscar Niemeyer in 1968 and protected by the City of Rio de Janeiro’s Register of Historic Sites.  It was closed in 1995 and currently it’s under complete retrofit and restoration to recover its original state with construction complete in 2016 and operated by Gran Melia Hotels. The program for the renovation was to redesign and update its facilities, increase operational efficiency and enhance the spirit and artistry of the original design.

The program of renovation includes 413 guestrooms distributed along its thirty 33 story cylindrical tower with unsurpassed views of São Conrado Beach and a totally renewed Convention Center whose original amphitheater will be replaced by several high ceiling convention and meeting rooms capable of conducting several events at the same time. A new addition to augment the current facilities will be built on top of the convention component to provide 257 one and two- bedroom apartments distributed in two thirteen story towers.
