Edinburgh Airport hotel plans beefed up
July 13 2017expanded 240 bed hotel on Almond Avenue at Edinburgh Airport, superceding earlier plans for a 175-bed venue.
Retaining a Spitfire Monument in its present position the build will largely reflect the original 3D Reid proposal in appearance, extending linearly to provide the required rooms with no increase in height and use of aluminium rainscreen above a masonry plinth..
In a concept statement the architects wrote: “The building’s position on the site will continue to mark the entrance into the airport, with the revised proposals increasing the hotel’s presence as a gateway and being more visible to those arriving and departing from the airport and give it closer proximity to both Eastfield Road and Jubilee Road.
The massing also retains all public services to the ground floor and all private bedrooms to the upper floors, thus allowing for an increase in the extent of glazing to the ground floor level and improving the extent of interactive facade which connects visually with Jubilee Road and the main terminal building.”
Meeting rooms, a fitness suite and bar will be amongst the facilities on offer.
