Project Breakdown

The third of our roll-out programme for this Canadian brand, was the flagship hotel for Future Inns which exploits a prime site within the new Cabot Circus retail development at the heart of Bristol. Won in competition, the hotel includes 149 rooms with a conference facility on the 6th floor and split level bar and restaurant on ground and basement level, and a very popular Jazz club.

AWW provided a full RIBA service to Future Inns with the building contract appointed under a management form. This project adapts their out-of-town hotel model for a city centre location and exploits both the inner ring road frontage and urban lifestyles to the full. The full basement with Jazz club was squeezed between a major highway and the historic culvert that crosses the site.

Project Result

“The contemporary and modern Future Inn Bristol Cabot Circus Hotel is situated adjacent to the striking architecture of the Cabot Circus shopping complex and close to the city’s business district.”

Director’s Quote

It was a big challenge convincing major players Hammerson and Landsec that relative newcomers Future Inns were their optimum choice as Hotel Partners; we answered this challenge by bringing along the best Architects in the region. Del Brett (Client)
