Welcome to Young Jeon's Senior Thesis Website
Hakuna Resort is a jungle/safari theme hotel that includes a huge indoor water park as well as outdoor pool. The other side of the resort is convention centers which provides multiple meeting spaces. Designed into three distinctive spaces, the indoor water park and convention space are adjacent to each end of hotel space. These spaces are connected with expansion joints, therefore, can be looked at as three separate buildings.
The hotel building has total of eight stories above ground with total height of 101’-5” to the top of roof excluding the basement. With each floor having approximately 45,000 SF, the hotel portion of the resort has 395,938 SF by itself. Therefore, with the help of expansion joints, this thesis will only focus on hotel part of Hakuna Resort.
