Moxy Hotel roll-out extends to Glasgow’s Collegelands
April 13 2016
Conforming to an existing master plan for the 47,000sq/m site the project will occupy a footprint of just 8,000sq/m including ground floor reception, lounge, bar and buffet space alongside new landscaping and a public square which will double as a taxi drop off area.
In a statement the design team wrote: “The final product has a characteristic and eye-catching front façade, with firm vertical divisions that then echo throughout the building, broken by horizontal stripes.
“The glazed ground floor of Moxy responds to the glazed ground floor of the adjacent office building. By opening the square in front the fact that the buildings are so close to each other is not that noticeable.”
Designed in-house by Vastint the scale, height, massing and materials are still to be finalised ahead of a formal planning application expected within the next few months.
Moxy are also delivering a 230-bed hotel at Edinburgh Airport and a 200-bed development close to Aberdeen Airport.
