De Vere submit Aberdeen hotel plan
January 11 2013third major hotel scheme in as many weeks has gone before planners at Aberdeen City Council with the submission of plans by De Vere Village Hotels for a 148 bed hotel at Kingswells Business Park.
Designed by Halliday Fraser Munro the hotel would accommodate an associated restaurant, bar, conference and leisure facilities and is located within the grounds of Kingswells House, a 17th century Quaker meeting place.
At five storeys in height the hotel will act as a hub for the wider business park and employs a materials palette comprising blue tinted glass, granite rainscreen and metal composite panels.
In their design statement Halliday Fraser Munro write: “The building is essentially a series of varying planes that express the internal use within. The design creates a series of clean, crisp lines yet retaining a simple volumetric composition.
“The introduction of projecting structural column lines clad in charcoal metal composite panels, set back from the black frame above, creates a rhythmical series of bays that provides a strong podium from which the elegant framed curtain walling planes rise.”
