We have been appointed to design the first Hampton by Hilton hotel in Manchester. The site is strategically located on Rochdale Road adjacent to the New Cross Neighbourhood Development Framework and the Noma Masterplan.
In line with the regeneration initiatives in this area, the scheme represents an opportunity to significantly enhance the quality and appearance of this key access corridor within Manchester city centre and it will act as a further stimulus to investment and the expansion of high quality city centre uses in this area.
The proposed scheme is created from a simple and refined pallet of materials that are warm and tactile in texture. Brown brick and rose gold / copper metal panels are to form large format / deep reveal openings that reflect the window proportions of the surrounding warehouses. The windows along Sharp Street have been angled inwards to create greater animation to Rochdale Road and to reflect the shift in grid pattern between the New Cross Street Masterplan and Angel Meadow.
