Travelodge roll-out continues with 60-bed Govan hotel
Mosaic Architecture + Design have prepared plans for the creation of a 60-bed Travelodge hotel at the junction of Linthouse Road and Govan Road, Glasgow.

Incorporating a ground floor bar and restaurant the three storey building will be formed from a mixed palette of red, brown and grey brickwith coloured cladding highlights reflecting Travelodge’s corporate branding.

In their design statement Mosaic observed: “The expressed gable reflects the historical buildings previously on the site, a reminder of industrial shipyard buildings which once occupied the site.

The horizontal banding and vertical fenestration are reflective of the strong elevational rythmic order of the traditional buildings in the context of the site.”

A mixture of planting, shared surfaces and car parking will be used to integrate the hotel with a neighbouring village green as part of Linthouse Point, CRGP’s wider residential masterplan.

Eh, no. It doesn't.

*slaps palm to face*

Really? Loving the post-justification BS:

"The expressed gable reflects the historical buildings previously on the site, a reminder of industrial shipyard buildings which once occupied the site.

The horizontal banding and vertical fenestration are reflective of the strong elevational rythmic order of the traditional buildings in the context of the site"

But its the exact same building as hundreds of other travel lodges - were they all inspired by previous shipbuilding industrial heritages? Wow, that's some coincidence...

#1agreed. Only time in history a sewerage plant will be thinking 'there goes the neighbourhood...'

#5. Thanks for making me smile. This is so bland and could be anywhere. Where is the nod to Govan's past?

Lets hope its better than the housing in the previous phase. The quality of build across from this is a shocker.

First off. Absolutely wrong location. Pacific Quay would've been better.

Next to a sewage works and not to mention on the doorstep of an active heliport and a super hospital.

Can only assume they are aiming for hospital business. Pretending it's anything to do with local vernacular is a bit of a shame for them.

Complimentary Vics Vaporub on the pillows instead of chocolate.
