Project Breakdown

AWW was instructed by developer and site owner P&O Properties to prepare proposals for an iconic 220 bed hotel and retail building on Drake Circus in Plymouth. The highly dramatic solution proposed would give Plymouth a landmark which would identify it in much the same way as the Eye in London or Blackpool Tower.

The 18-storey hotel sits above a plinth of mixed retail and leisure use. The hotel design incorporates an active solar energy double skin facade.

Director’s Quote

“This is a very exciting design with its sweeping curved canopy and the hotel would be an iconic addition to the Plymouth skyline.”
