Hotel, Gt Ancoats Manchester
A proposal for development of 125 hotel rooms underground carparking and double height commercial space at podium level.
The staccato modulation of the facade follows traditional cotton weaves and makes reference to the nearby mills which were formerly at the seat of the industrial revolution.
Manchester City Planning Dept. required a building which made a bold statement and our response is an unapologetic intervention which addresses the Ancoats Lane Street Scape.
To communicate scale and massing more effectivly physical and computer generated models have been produced. A visually verified computer model was generated which illustrates the impact of the proposal on the streetscape
It adds to the density, which is good, but it is very plain - not in a way that makes it chic or interesting, just plain and boring. In insipid white doesn't do it any favours either. Better than nothing, but a much poorer standard that most new buildings at this end of town, which are mostly a high standard and individual.
