SECC beds in
October 7 2008
The partnership of Pavilion Developments Ltd and Macdonald Estates Plc with EPR Architects Ltd are pressing ahead with plans for the land adjacent to the mooted SECC Arena, a key venue for the 2014 Commonwealth Games.
Rising to nine stories, the £16million 179 bed hotel is clad in aluminium panels for a simple rectilinear form. A chequer board glazing fenestration remains flush throughout the body of the building with upper floor windows punched out to act as a “frieze”.
A sequence of external uplighting and recessed downlights are being investigated to contribute to Glasgow’s lighting strategy. The ground floor façade will incorporate recessed LEDs to provide a flush of light to side walls.
