Our design turns a challenging corner site into a vibrant commercial hub with space for work and leisure, centered around a new public plaza as an extension of the street.

The hotel and office are characterised by strong memorable forms counterpointed with contrasting material expression. The hotel takes material inspiration from existing brick structures on the site, whilst also looking towards the typology of the Art Deco hotel with its pronounced horizontal datum lines. The office is presented in contrast as a light filigree metal frame, with asymetrical bay windows emphasising the converging geometries on the site.
