Project Information

Mackay and Partners new scheme replaces an unoccupied 1960s office building with a state of the art 291 bedroom hotel, providing much needed new facilities for the City Fringe area of the City of London.

The building comprises two forms. The seven storey lower block has a skin of CNC milled “solid surface” wall cladding lit from behind by LED lights to create a striking visual effect. Behind this a 17 storey tower of clear and tinted glass panels interspersed with LED lighting cleverly maximises the site potential without obscuring views of the nearby Tower of London.

The building utilises a number of intelligent building systems to achieve a “BREEAM Excellent” energy rating including thermally efficient facades, heat recovery systems, green roofs and a six storey living wall complementing the nearby gardens.

Construction commenced in January 2013 and the new Motel One hotel is scheduled to open in summer 2014.
