Capita Hotel Capability Case Studies
ARCHITECTURAL CASE STUDY Art’otel, Hoxton
ESA Architects have outlined a proposal for an art’otel with Park Plaza Hotels; a new concept consisting of themed hotel accommodation supported by an art gallery, cinema, restaurants and other public cultural facilities placed in the heart of Hoxton. The art’otel provides a contemporary blend of modern art and architecture. Each 4-star deluxe art’otel is designed with the work of a prominent and internationally recognised artist, whose work features throughout both guestrooms and the public areas. The site is currently occupied by a car park situated between Old Street and Rivington Street within the London Borough of Hackney in the south Shoreditch area. The surrounding area is a mix of office, residential and hotel units generally around five storeys in height. The site has potential for a tall building but it will require a high quality architectural proposal in order to unlock this opportunity.
