Bicester Heritage Hotel, Oxfordshire

Overview / Brief / Design Response

The Bicester Heritage hotel will be situated on a former RAF base in the heart of “motorsport valley”, close to a number of Formula One teams and the Silverstone Circuit.  The scheme features a 252-room hotel, 92-unit aparthotel, restaurant, leisure facilities and conference centre.  Our design received planning permission in 2018.

“We were thrilled to be selected to design this landmark hotel within the former RAF base, forming part of the Bicester Heritage Masterplan vision focusing on motorcars and aeroplanes. The design objective has been to respond in a contemporary manner to the site’s unique past, drawing inspiration from its historic position at the forefront of aviation, engineering, and innovation while complementing the existing period buildings. The elevations take inspiration from the listed aircraft hangers within Bicester Heritage, whilst the metal-clad curved façade references the sinuous line of a classic car.

Providing 344 hotel and aparthotel rooms, and with extensive facilities including food and beverage, leisure and conferencing, this new hotel will contribute to the greater Bicester and Oxford area hospitality offer while enhancing the activities of Bicester Heritage and its future plans for accommodation, theatre, automotive research and maintenance.”
