When the developer's previous attempts failed at gaining planning approval for the redevelopment of the hotel site, he approached MADE to assist him.
MADE proposed to refurbish the existing building and provide a new 'C' shaped building that houses the new hotel rooms, function halls and a roof garden. The two buildings were linked with a rotunda reception and circulation tower to resolve level differences.
The vehicular circulation was carefully designed to allow for coach drop offs for functions without disrupting the hotel use.
Maximising the development to provide around 120 bedrooms and 750 seater function capacity.
