Oban to welcome new waterfront Premier Inn
December 7 2015
Incorporating a ground floor restaurant and parking the development is situated adjacent to the town’s railway station and ferry terminal on the site of an existing bowling alley.
In a statement the practice remarked: “The building has been designed with two distinct frontages, one facing Shore Street and the other overlooking the bay with each of the elevations designed with a different but cohesive approach. The Shore Street elevation is finished in a smooth white render usually associated with Scottish coastal architecture with the rear clad in zinc extending from the roof. Grey timber cladding is used to emphasise the stair tower.
“The window openings are gathered vertically with full height windows and opaque spandrel panels with the dormers articulating the eaves and providing a focus at the top of the curtain walling. The restaurant sits as a glass box and framed by a folded canopy to bring a dynamic interest to the facade.”
The practice has delivered a number of projects for the client including hotels in Glasgow and Edinburgh.
