The 291 bed hotel building designed by Mackay + Partners, opened pre-Christmas 2014. The building has created a new contemporary focus and identity for The Minories that will act as a benchmark for future neighbouring developments. The design is entirely contemporary yet also fully responsive to its current and known future context. A high standard of sustainability is aimed at for all aspects of the development to reduce the environmental impact and to support sustainable working.
Statement of the jury
The main appeal of this hotel is its clear and linear design, which conveys both modernity and high quality. The building is also notable for the high standards it meets for sustainability and environmental and friendliness.
