New hotel for prominent Manchester site

Dexter Moren Associates have submitted designs into planning for a new 187 bed contemporary hotel on behalf of West Properties, located at the junction of Rochdale Road and Sharp Street.

The hotel is conceived as two interlocking blocks with distinct facade treatments, unified by a feature entrance canopy. The canopy will include a series of circular rooflights that produce a dramatic play of shadow and light to create a unique arrival.

Coloured fins on the window frames double to articulate the facade whilst also providing sun shading.
