ICA rolls the Dyce with Aberdeen hotel plan
February 6 2015submitted plans to build a modular 155 bed Hampton by Hilton branded hotel at Dyce Drive, Aberdeen.
Located to the south of the city’s airport in an area designated for office and industrial use, the L-plan build is intended to capitalise on ongoing airport expansion and construction of the Aberdeen Western peripheral Route.
Employing a variety of aluminium cladding panels to differentiate ground floor public spaces with bedrooms above the scheme intends to work as a ‘visual marker’ on a key route into the city.
In their design statement ICA said: “The north elevation forms the rear of the building but is the main elevation that borders Dyce Drive. As a result the corner of the building has been punctured to create a feature area which creates a focal point from the surrounding area.
“Small areas of colour are used to depict individual windows on the upper floors. This area is highlighted by an area of cladding which protrudes from the main building line. Large areas of horizontal metallic cladding are used throughout the full building and a form of coursing is used continuously.”
A landscaping strategy has been devised by Ian White Associates.
