3DReid Architects unveil £8.5m Glasgow hotel conversion
July 8 2016£8.5m Glasgow hotel conversion, offering 83 bedrooms on behalf of Evans Dakota Hotels on the corner of West Regent and Pitt Street’s.
The first city centre hotel to be rolled out under the Dakota Deluxe brand, a shift from its traditional focus on edge of town sites, the project saw a redundant mid-century office block completely overhauled for its new role.
In a statement the architects wrote: “The façade was replaced with an orderly grid of dark grey facing brick and large scale, aluminium framed windows to each bedroom. The monochromatic palette of materials was designed to accentuate the brand’s identity and was enriched with layers of glossy and textured materials set within the brick grid. Materials including opaque ribbed glass, textured Corian cladding, perforated steel awnings and polished granite window surrounds.
“Working within the constraints of the existing building and concrete structure proved challenging to coordinate the building services and associated structural interventions. However, the result was a compact and efficient space plan with generously proportioned bedrooms and intimate public spaces which ultimately add to the guest experience.
