A 180 BEDROOMED FOUR STAR HOTEL WITH CONFERENCE ROOM FACILITIES FOR 300 DELEGATES, FITNESS SUITE AND MEETING ROOM AMENITIES, THE HOTEL ALSO HAS DIRECT LINKS TO THE ADJACENT TERMINAL BUILDING. THE SITE IS LOCATED JUST OFF THE B6918 AND WITHIN CLOSE PROXIMITY TO THE AIRPORT TERMINAL.
The geometry and topology of the site was a major factor in the scheme design. In order to maximise the site’s potential it was decided that the main body of the accommodation should flank the perimeter of the site, thus creating a landscaped internal courtyard and providing an efficient use of the site.
The treatment of the hotel’s façade attempts to create a contemporary and dynamic aesthetic. The rhythm of the elevations draws upon the movement and activity of people through the Airport complex by creating a façade which displays a feeling of motion.
