George Square hotel expansion hits the roof
July 17 2017double storey rooftop extension following submission of plans by Leask Architects to increase the number of available bedrooms to 84.
Offering additional bedroom accommodation the scheme would build on the existing 1990s scheme by stacking a further 20 rooms on top of the current building, together with a new plant level, with six of these rooms benefitting from southerly views across the city skyline.
In urging planners to accept their proposals the architects wrote: “The design with its use of materiality and form is a modern addition to a neo-classical 1990s building that still references the existing building with its emphasizing of horizontal lines, window proportions and rhythmical subdivision.”
Faced in copper coloured cladding panels the extension will be accessible via a corner glazed stairwell.
