Inverness Airport Hotel lands in planning
September 24 2018
ICA Architects have come forward with plans for a 130-bed hotel serving Inverness Airport as part of a masterplan for a new business hub.
Located within a five-minute walk of the terminal building the hotel will be accessed via a new road connecting to existing infrastructure, adopting a linear form centred on a small ‘tower’ element in order to break the façade into smaller elements.
In a statement ICA wrote: “The four pieces of the building will be separated by large areas of glazing that help to emphasise the massing strategy and visually break the long elevations.
“The overall division of the building mass has been aided through the use of varying facade treatments and materials. The dominant blocks of the building are articulated in a more solid nature by introducing a structured window fenestration pattern with fibre cement cladding panels. These are then grouped together to create smaller building elements within the overall facade.”
The linear plan of the building will be oriented to frame views of the airport, maximising the volume of ground floor public spaces facing onto the terminal.
