Sheraton Hotels & Resorts has announced that Sheraton Madagascar, located in the country’s capital city Antananarivo, will soon undergo a transformation, with Areen Design commissioned to create a full design and procurement package, providing interior design services and supplying both FF&E and OS&E.
With completion and handover expected to occur in Q1 of 2018, the new interiors will welcome guests to spaces that reflect Marriott’s quality and international standards, alongside the values held by the Sheraton brand in the hospitality sector.
Andrew Linwood, Head of Hospitality Design, Areen, explains: “Clients benefit from a deeply engrained design ‘know-how’ combined with procurement services based on quality and product durability. Design specifications are written with localisation, budget and suitability in mind, thanks to close collaboration between our departments. All this translates into better quality specifications, early and accurate budgeting, transparency, greater efficiencies, and ultimately cost savings while delivering a high quality service. Alongside these benefits, our design team were also inspired by the project’s location. I believe our interior spaces now incorporate a strong flavour of the locality and the Malagasy heritage; from striking patterns and colours, to structures and metalwork. The standards international travellers expect from Sheraton have still been provided but with more than a firm nod towards local influence.”
