Keppie pen SECC hotel and serviced apartment scheme
January 25 2016393 rooms together with 35 serviced apartments at the entrance to Glasgow’s SECC complex on behalf of Chesterpeak Developments.
Intended to form an urban crossroads fronted by ground floor retail and leisure the scheme will screen an existing multi-storey car park with a ‘chamfered corner’ funnelling pedestrian traffic in from the city centre and west end.
Split into two elements the scheme will see an 11 storey four star hotel face Stobcross Road with a neighbouring three star hotel fronting Finnieston Street with surrounding pavements resurfaced and space for an SECC ‘advertising totem’ to the north.
In their design statement Keppie observed: “The building footprints have been arranged to wrap around the car park whilst creating a continuous building edge at street level.
“At ground floor, dedicated service access is provided to back-of-house hotel and commercial units by the service lanes to the south and east of the car park.”
The four star element will be faced with natural stone cladding to primary elevations, a finish which will be continued through to the podium of the three star hotel. Above this however the latter will be clad in cementitious fibre board rainscreen.
