An empire in northern Algeria

The Mohamed Benahmed Convention Centre stands proudly on the Mediterranean coast, on the north west side of the city of Oran in Algeria. The building makes good use of contemporary architecture design, with a façade that blends the colour of desert sand with the turquoise blue typically found in Algerian culture.

This architectural complex was built to host the 16th International Conference & Exhibition on Liquefied Natural Gas, held in April 2010. The Convention Centre comprises the Conference Centre, Exhibition Hall, five star Le Meridien luxury hotel and underground car park, all of which were purpose-built.

CAPRI PERLA

Capri Perla limestone was used for these offices, in which spaces open to the exterior via curtain walls (offices and meeting rooms) are combined with other interior areas without natural light (reception and distributors), because of its clarity, uniformity and reflection of light. This natural stone was used for the floors in honed finish 60 × 60 format, with claddings cut to size, generally honed and with a textured finish as trim.

CAPRI PERLA and red travertine

The interior spaces in the Picasso Tower are covered with large format slabs of Capri Perla limestone on the floors and spiral stairs with non-slip grooves and applied on the accesses to the lifts and even on the ceilings of these accesses. This material was chosen from among a wide range of limestone for its high wear resistance compared to the rest.

Rojo Alicante and white marble

The entrance hall and cloister of this three-storey building are clad in Rojo Alicante and white marble. The large format white floors combine pieces measuring 60 x 60 x 2 and brackets of the same size in both materials. The stairways have white steps and walls clad with Rojo Alicante with a hand rail embedded in the wall itself. For the white marble claddings, large format  bush-hammered white marble pieces were used at the base with polished ones at the top, in a horizontal layout, narrowing to the bush-hammered plinth on the top floor. Finally, as the central axis, the cloister is delimited with columns and a wall of balusters and hand rails on the top floor.
