Hamilton racecourse in the running for 118-bed hotel
November 2 2017118-bed Hampton by Hilton branded hotel within the grounds of Hamilton Park Racecourse.
Augmenting existing facilities the hotel will provide guest accommodation for race-goers and takes the form of a rendered linear block with pre-cast reconstituted stone details. Bookended by twin-gabled end elevations under a fibre-cement slate pitch roof to harmonise with the 1926 grandstand.
The use of slate is further extended down the facades to a string course at first and third floor level in order to give the impression of a low eaves height.
In a statement the architects said: “The proposals seek to offer a hotel that sits comfortably within an existing family of buildings in this parkland setting; presenting a contemporary interpretation of traditional forms, detailing and materials to complement the character of the racecourse’s existing building complex. The orientation of the hotel provides the public areas on the ground floor with direct access to the racecourse.”
Construction of the the hotel follows hot on the heels of a similar venue at Fountainbridge.
