Launch of Hyatt Regency Erbil Residences

December 14, 2022

Earlier this year, Hyatt Regency Erbil Residences has launched its 93 stylishly furnished serviced apartments located in the business district by the World Trade Center Erbil.

DSA Architects International in conjunction with Haluk Ozdogan of Access Hospitality, were appointed to complete and transform the previous residences to meet all the expectations of its Hyatt branding in 2017.

DSA’s involvement ranged from consultation on the apartments to the redesign and fitting out of the public areas and back of house. The lobby, reception, meeting rooms, catering and restrooms were all given particular attention to create modern, long stay business orientated accommodation.

“On this project we coordinated with interior designers, taking on their proposals and seeing them through to construction that included high-quality bespoke furniture. Specialist consultant input was also coordinated for the residences. The development is ideally placed to fulfil the Hyatt Regency mission of bringing people together and fostering connections, a vital role in an uncertain world. Working on this project gave us all an insight into another culture, a lively world well worth seeing which we got to know through this project.” - Mike Scott, DSA Group Managing Director

The residences' adjoining 204-guestroom hotel, Hyatt Regency Erbil, is expected to open in 2026, as part of the Regency brand's expansion in the Middle East.

Originally, I am from France but have spent many years living across the world, from Africa, The United States and most recently the Middle East.

Throughout my life I have always enjoyed an outdoor lifestyle and as you can see, I have travelled a lot. Having an active life is very important to me, whether that be through things like mountain biking and water sports or even camping at the weekend.

My education began at the School of Versailles in Paris. It was a great school to study at, but I also loved it because of its location. Paris is such a diverse city that is always evolving. If you accompany that with decades of stunning architecture, it really becomes and place like no other.

I have been interested in seeing things grow and develop since a very young age. As a girl I would build sandcastles and tree houses with my brother. Over time that interest developed further and by my teens I knew I wanted to be an architect.

For the last 5 years I have been with the DSA team and my role consists of managing projects from design to creation. As a Project Architect, I am positioned between the design team and the client. It’s a role that I love because it can be so varied from project to project.

Each client has their own particular requests, and it is critical that I understand them at an early stage.

Not only does this help ensure that all team members keep to what the client wants, but also it means that any design hurdles can resolved at a swift pace, avoiding lengthy delays.

When a project begins, inspiration for design is never too far away. From looking back at past successes and evolving those ideas further, to examining the surroundings of the project location. It’s fundamental to capture the vision of the client, taking multiple elements and combining them to create a strong identity.

Spending some quality family time with my husband and son is extremely important to me. When i’m not emersed in a project, I like to spend as much time with them as possible. I also have a great passion for cooking and maintaining a healthy diet. I am always researching new and exciting recipes.

However, the excitement for designing is always with me and currently I am designing a villa for my family and I in France during my spare time.
