Queen Street Station overhaul inspires Glasgow hotel bid
October 25 2017Dale House, a disused bank on Glasgow’s West George Street, to enable construction of a 160 room Meininger hotel with ground floor retail extending through to Anchor Lane.
Faced in limestone cladding to the front and white/buff brickwork to the rear and a black, glazed brick basecourse the development has been conceived to sit in harmony with the remodeled Queen Street Station frontage.
Outlining their approach to the building envelope Norr wrote: “The facade is clearly articulated as repetitive apertures with an honest expression of rooms behind providing depth of modelling, shadow and articulation. A salient and unique aspect of the character of the lanes relates to the use of high quality materials as the facade ‘folds’ around the cor¬ner into Anchor Lane from West George Street.”
Delivered with Legal & General the professional team includes Blyth & Blyth, Harrison Stevens and Buro Happold the hotel will include a number of public realm enhancements such as hanging lights through Anchor Lane and installing granite paving.
