Edinburgh Airport’s Moxy Hotel opens for business
July 15 2019
Air travellers are being catered for by a new hotel at Edinburgh Airport with the opening of a 230-bed Moxy branded venue created by Marriott to appeal specifically to Millenials.
Externally the hotel is finished in 150sq/m of glass curtain walling supplied by Cube Glass for the reception and bar areas and includes a pink ‘towel rail’ as a ‘corner feature’.
In a design statement associated with the initial planning application, Faithful & Gould wrote: “Amongst the design team it was agreed to create an area of visual interest above the main elevation and on the gable along Eastfield Road which consists of a ‘towel rail’ element, built out using Alucobond cladding panels. This creates visual interest to the elevation and helps to break up repeated windows and cladding to the elevation.”
Delivered by Clark Contracts and designed by Faithful & Gould the project comes complete with a book-themed interior in reference the Edinburgh’s status as a Unesco City of Literature.
