PIROZ Project

Piroz is a mixed-use development with hotel, food and beverage and office facilities and will be situated in the city of Erbil in Iraq. The developer ATCONZ RED worked with architects, Kettle Collective, who took inspiration for the hotel design from the surrounding area and it’s architectural past.

The hotel design is modelled heavily on the Ziggurat and when completed will have an excellent high quality finish ensuring satisfaction by users.

An adjacent food and beverage zone is anticipated to be popular as Erbil develops its offerings to suit incoming visitors and new expat residents. With the predicted influx of hotels and serviced apartments expected over the next few years, the competition is expected to increase.

An office tower, which will be situated on the site with access to the food and beverage zone will offer both short and long-term rental.

Lush landscaping and sufficient parking complete the self-contained, high quality and efficient development.
