This design builds seeks to better reflect the transition in height with its neighbour by articulating the skyline and providing increased setbacks to its neighbour on the south.The proposed development is a fourteen-storey hotel (plus basement) comprising of 170 rooms in total with a lobby and restaurant at ground level and roof terrace on the tenth floor.
The design has come in part from an evaluation of the existing architectural expression and materials in this western portion of Northbridge. We have identified the use of red brick, concrete as exemplifying the buildings of this area.
Contemporary architectural expression of building elements, with a mix of materials and colour is used to accentuate building rhythm and features. These include glass, metal screens, metal panels, concrete and timber. All rooms are designed to enhance access to natural light and ventilation. The facade treatments reflect a passive thermal design to reduce solar heat gain, maximising natural shading with deep overhangs and louvres. Care has been taken in designing the elevation of this building to ensure that it is “four-sided” and attractive from every angle rather than just from the front elevation.
