The building provides 250 bedrooms in four star accommodation with significant conference and event facilities and a leisure suite within the basement.
The appointment also covered interior design of the hotel public spaces including the bar, lobby, reception and restaurant. With an overseeing role on bedroom design and finishes, the integrity between the overall architecture and the internal character of the hotel was ensured.
The building occupies the full width of a city block and is arranged as bedroom wings around a central landscaped courtyard, this provides rooms with a connection to the street or the alternative quiet sheltered space.
The brief was to push the boundaries of corporate hotel design and create a pioneering and radical building which would create the feel of a specialty one off hotel within an international chain.
