The construction of a new wing for the existing Radisson Blu Bamako will see 117 additional rooms and new public areas added to the hotel in the Malian capital of Bamako - estimated to be one of Africa’s fastest growing cities and known for manufacturing industries including textiles, processed meat and metal goods.
The project will be driven by Source IBA’s Johannesburg based designer and partner Andrew Merrington, who says the design concept for the new project will feature a combination of Radisson Blu’s Scandinavian heritage combined with West African influences.
