The project forms part of a mixed use master-plan designed by Manson in the Lansdowne area of Bournemouth. The brief included a requirement for a 129 bed hotel for Premier Inn, including restaurant and back of house areas.
Our solution for the site was to present a well-balanced, sophisticated façade that would contribute to the streetscape along the main arterial route of Christchurch Road. The building addresses the proposed pedestrianised boulevard through the site.
Restaurant spaces within the hotel where designed to open up onto the landscaped pedestrianised area in order to create active frontages to the overall masterplan. The building is constructed in brickwork with a feature colonnade formed at ground floor. Large double height windows are created in the façade system giving a sophisticated language, scale and character. The building commenced on site in October 2015 and will be completed in spring 2017.
