The new Hilton (Eliakim Namundjebo Plaza) Hotel in Windhoek, Namibia, forms the first phase of the proposed Freedom Square development in the heart of the capital. The Hilton enjoys panoramic views of the city and surrounding mountains to the west and southwest. Announcing the hotel to the approaching guest and marking its main entrance is a 40m high glass-and-steel tower. The prominent entrance drum links to a full-height atrium from where all public functions in the main building can be reached: the lounge and coffee shop, banqueting halls, meeting rooms and terrace on ground level, and an all-day dining restaurant, cocktail bar and terrace on mezzanine. Natural light penetrates the building interior through the partially glazed atrium. An executive lounge is located on the upper two levels of the glazed drum and links to a rooftop pool, poolside cabanas, a gym and wellness facility, and a terrace bar.
