Kirkcaldy Premier Inn references ‘pavilion’ architecture
March 30 201660 bedroom Premier Inn hotel within the John Smith business park, Kirkcaldy.
Located on the outskirts of town the project will be faced with brick and blockwork with aluminium cladding and render.
In their design statement the architects noted: “The building is expressed as three simple elements. A private solid bedroom block, a transparent glass box restaurant and a stair tower. The verticality of the stair tower provides relief to the horizontal emphasis of the bedroom block and restaurant.
“The bedroom block, linear with a flat roof, is a reference to the pavilion architecture typically found within business parks. A strategic kink in the roof creates a raised northwest corner to enhance the building presence onto Ostlers Way. This gives the impression of the roof being peeled from the building.”
Several two and three storey office pavilions have already been built on the out of town estate with more set to follow.
