ROYAL ARSENAL HOTEL
This 130 room hotel forms part of our Royal Arsenal masterplan and marks the western gateway entrance into the development. The building has a simple linear plan that re-establishes an urban edge to Beresford Street, separating this busy road from a tranquil linear park that connects the town centre to the river Thames.
The entrance to the hotel is located on the junction and gives direct access to the reception, core, dining and meeting rooms. Each upper level floor plan has a central corridor with guest bedrooms on ether side and a bullnose that respond to the road junction.
The repetitive layout of the rooms is reflected in the elevation with punched window openings set within a dove grey fibre cement cladding system that runs continuously around the facade to accentuate the building’s form. Each bedroom window has a delicate white metal brise-soleil providing shading from the sun whilst making a visual reference to the portholes of the 17th Century warships that were once built on the site.
