Description

The design and build project combined the sensitive conversion / refurbishment of an existing five storey building together with a new six storey element built around an external terrace on a tight urban site in the busy Highbridge area of Newcastle.

The interior design concept for the reception, bar and lounge area was based upon the Bridges of Newcastle.

One of the main features of the hotel is the existing archway which was refurbished and forms the main entrance. The rooms in the existing building were detailed to reflect the existing character whilst maintaining the clean modern lines associated with Motel One’s brand, in particular the contemporary guest bathroom.
